At Swanwick Hall School we ensure that all students have full access to all educational provision, opportunities and experiences. In order to provide all young people with the same chance of success, we deploy strategies to enhance equitable access and opportunity. This is underpinned by our value of inclusivity:  

We value the diversity within our school and provide opportunities for all to flourish and achieve their potential in a safe and happy environment. 

We have an experienced Inclusion Team, led by Shane Worrall, Deputy Headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead: 

Helen Vladimirovs Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead 

Kate Parkin Attendance Officer 

Rachel Christian Family Support Worker 

Linda Piper Youth Worker  

Our comprehensive Learning Support Team is led by Louise Gregory, SENDCo. 

Each year team is led by a Progress and Achievement Leader, a teacher who ensures that the ethos, behaviours and engagement with learning meet our expected standards and who oversees student progress towards ambitious targets. The PAL is supported by a Progress and Achievement Manager, a member of support staff who manages the year group on a day-to-day basis and is often the first point of contact for home. Each year team also has a group of tutors who oversee the learning and wellbeing of approximately 25-30 students in each tutor group.

All students have different strengths and needs. At the Swanwick Hall School, we ensure that support is tailored so that everyone can succeed. We recognise that people, situations and circumstances often need to be treated individually ensuring that all students are ready to learn, can access the curriculum and can make outstanding progress.
