Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

We believe that all students should be equally valued and safe in school. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse learning atmosphere where everyone can flourish. In the LINC (Learning, Inclusion & Nurture Centre) we assist students with challenging and varied education, health and social care needs and help their parents/carers.

The LINC Team

The LINC was created with a clear vision of the importance of assisting students who have challenging and varied needs. We work together as a specialised, highly successful team including:

  • Amy Hawkes – SENCo – Hawkes.A@myton.co.uk
  • Louise Cleaver – Associate SENCo – Cleaver.L@myton.co.uk
  • Carolyn Haines – Student Welfare & Support Manager – Haines.C@myton.co.uk
  • Sally Montague – Senior Behaviour Manager/The Inclusion Centre – Montague.S@myton.co.uk
  • And our teams of Teaching Assistants, Behaviour and Engagement staff, English as Additional Language Specialists, Student Support, Administrative Support and numerous highly qualified external professional agencies.

The Inclusion Centre

In the Inclusion Centre, we work with selected students – in collaboration with their parents and teachers – to provide additional support to enable them to achieve their full potential and fully integrate into the Myton community.

We run:

  • social development courses to help our students grow as people
  • nurture courses for students in Year 7 and 8 to help them settle into life at Myton School and form relationships with their peers
  • extra sessions on key subjects to help reinforce students’ learning

Miss Montague and Mrs Dulley are both part of the school Safeguarding Team.

We are all Early Help trained in order to support families further inside and outside of school.
