Support for Pupils with Complex Learning Needs

Additional Provision

We are in our tenth year of providing increased support for pupils with Complex Learning Needs

Titus Salt School was selected as the first secondary school in Bradford to provide Designated Specialist Provision (DSP) to enable the successful inclusion of an increased range of pupils with complex learning difficulties in a mainstream school. We are currently undergoing an expansion programme to increase our capacity from 15 to 30. 

A specialist teacher of SEND along with 2 other SEND teachers and a team of specialised Higher Level and Learning Support Assistants oversee the teaching, support and integration of our DSP pupils.

Our aims

  • Focus on individual needs to maximise progress
  • Provide a nurturing and  supportive environment
  • Include pupils in mainstream lessons wherever appropriate
  • Develop the pupils’ confidence and independence
  • Maintain regular contact to ensure we work in partnership with parents
  • Work alongside a range of outside professionals to ensure quality provision is provided

We provide

  • A personalised timetable
  • Differentiated work in mainstream lessons
  • Additional support
  • Individual & small group teaching
  • Links to outside specialists
  • Opportunities for students to work alongside their peers
  • Encouragement for students to take part in wider school activities
  • Additional trained teaching and support staff
  • Transition work with feeder schools  

An Inclusive School

Titus Salt School is proud of its ethos of inclusion. All of our KS3 DSP pupils spend at least 50% of their time in mainstream lessons and are encouraged to take place in a wide range of extra-curricular activities including Dance, Archery and climbing club as well as taking part in the school show.

This helps build their confidence and enables them to take a full part in school life.

Our resources include

  • 2  dedicated classrooms  within Achievement Support
  • Laptops with appropriate software
  • Tailor-made  teaching materials
  • A bank of recommended resources to support speech and language development
  • Specialist maths resources such as Abacus Evolve and Numicon
  • Access to equipment, including a kitchen, for teaching life skills
  • Practical aids and learning games
  • Reading schemes to help develop literacy skills

Main Admissions Criteria for DSP (Complex Learning Needs)

All pupils’ allocated places will have an Education, Health and Care Plan (or be undergoing statutory assessment). Pupils will be working significantly below their chronological age academically (usually from EYFS-Year 2) and may have multiple and co-existing needs. Placements will be sought through and formally approved by Bradford MDC in consultation with the school.

You are welcome to arrange a visit to our school or seek further information.

    • KS4 Performance Information

      We are delighted with our headline figure of 57.5% A* to C including English and Maths grades 9 to 4 which gives the best like for like comparison of KS4 examination results at this current time; it is our best result which has been steadily improving over the last four years. Our pupils should be exceedingly proud of their achievements; we have a 100% pass rate of pupils gaining at least 1A* to G / 9 to 1  grade; our “Basics” measure has increased to 60% with 12.8% of passes in both English and Maths at the new high level of grades 7 to 9 with 1.6% at grade 9. In recent years we have had a focus on English and with the removal of Controlled Assessments we have developed key skills and knowledge in both English Language and Literature; both subjects have increased outcomes with English Language moving from 61% to 67% and English Literature improving from 56% to 73% which when combined gives the “Best English” performance measure of 77%. We also had strong performances in the STEM subjects of Science including Computer Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths as well as in the EBacc subjects which at 27% is likely to be above the national average once again. We have had some stunning individual performances with 52% of pupils attaining 8 or more A* to C and 9 to 4 grades; 45 pupils gained at least 1 grade at A* with 11 of them also gaining at least 1 grade 9. We are looking forward to welcoming many of our pupils back into our Sixth Form in September and we wish all our students the very best in their future choices.

  • Community

    • Good community links add relevance and interest to students’ work. We have strong business links and work closely with voluntary groups, our local primary schools and other organisations. Our growing partnership with local providers is a real strength.

      We are keen to be ‘community partners’. Students and staff are active members of local focus groups and attend local forums. As the lead secondary school within the Shipley Achieving Success (SAS) partnership we are proactive in our support with young people and their families. Our Extended School provision is wide ranging and offers opportunities to engage in after school and holiday clubs together with a wide range of workshops.

    • We are an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school that is extremely popular and oversubscribed.  We moved into our new school building in September 2008 and have outstanding facilities and a state of the art learning environment.

      We are proud of our comprehensive school principles and our daily work is centred on four key values; summarised as together we can make a difference; resilient to change; ambitious to excel and caring for the lives of individuals. We are a school with great aspirations; proud of our history and heritage, yet always looking to the future – celebrating student well-being, high academic standards and achievement for all. Success at school is the result of students, parents/carers and teachers working together.
