For full details of our SEND provision please refer to the SEND policy which can be found here.

The Hampton High SENDCo is Benjamin Fleetham.

The Hampton High SEND Governor is Hilary Pearce.

We are committed to meeting the SEND needs of our students as outlined in the Richmond Borough local offer (

How does Hampton High know if my child needs extra help?

Hampton High has an extensive transition program for students joining Hampton High in Year 7. This has been created and led by Ms Libby Povey and has proved to be an invaluable tool to help students feel welcome and supported at Hampton High.

The school will contact primary schools during the summer term with a specific focus on incoming students. This will involve the Mr Fleetham and the Head of Year 7, and/or the Assistant Head of Year 7, meeting with the SENCo and Year 6 teachers of the primary schools.

For primary schools that only have a small number joining Hampton High Mr Fleetham also meets with the relevant SENCos or Year 6 teachers at a transition event hosted by AfC.

All students and parents are invited to a short interview with a member of senior Hampton High staff; Mr Fleetham will be present throughout the evening to allow all parents and children to discuss any SEND issues or concerns.

Where possible a member of the SEND department will attend annual reviews of Year 6 Educational Health Care Plans.

As part of the transition process we also host short transition afternoons, where selected students from all primary schools are invited to meet other students joining, as well as the staff involved in supporting them. There are usually 3 or 4 separate afternoons, as well as specific sessions for those students that are the only ones joining us form their primary school.

During Year 7 all Hampton High students complete Cognitive Ability Tests as well as reading and spelling tests. This usually takes place in the first half of autumn term and helps us identify students who may benefit from additional support.

Students who join Hampton High after their autumn term of Year 7 are assessed in the same way (CAT test as well as reading and spelling tests).

Class teachers are also able to identify students who may need additional support; they can raise this information with the SEND team.

What should I do if I think my child may have a special educational need or disability?

Parents can contact their child’s form tutor or Head of Year, in the first instance. Email addresses and contact numbers are available in the “Contact Us” section of the website.

If parents are concerned about a particular subject they should contact the class teacher directly.

If appropriate, the tutor, teacher or Head of Year will raise concerns with the SENDCo, Mr Fleetham.

Parents who wish to discuss a child’s special educational needs may also contact the SEN department.

To contact the SENDCo directly via email please use or the SEND departments administration assistant via

You can also contact the Single Point of Access for Richmond Borough students using the following link:

This link can be used to contact agencies that can formally assess and diagnose specific learning needs such as ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, etc.

How will Hampton High support my child?

Hampton High is committed to providing an inclusive, broad and balanced curriculum.

For every student we aim to provide:

Differentiated tasks in the classroom for individual students where necessary.

Where classes are streamed by ability we are able to support less able students by offering smaller classes where possible as well as the potential for increased adult support.

Teachers will use progress data inform planning and identify targets for students to improve. If there are concerns that a child is not making progress they can contact the SEND team.

All students are able to attend a ‘homework club’ on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Hampton High; this runs from the end of afternoon registration until 4pm.

In addition, for some students with SEND the school will also provide:

Additional literacy and numeracy support in the form of “Catch Up” sessions. These usually run as a 1:1 session for approximately 20 minutes to avoid disruption to the regular curriculum. We also avoid withdrawing students from core subjects (English, Maths and Science).

Adaptations to learning environments; access to word processors, coloured overlays or additional handouts in class are a good first step in providing an inclusive environment. In rare occasions some students can benefit from “Time-Out” cards that allows them to wait outside their classroom if they feel overwhelmed.

In-class or small group support as needed to enable the student access the curriculum.

Lunchtime rooms, including a quiet room for students who struggle with unstructured times.

Reading intervention during registration.

An Emotional Literacy Support Assistant to help with a range of issues outside of academic concerns.

Social skills groups.

Some students with an “Education Support Plan” which is issued to their teachers. This is a collection of specific strategies that will help the student succeed in school collated in one location.

The SENDCo is responsible for tracking the progress of SEND students.

For students with an Education Health and Care Plan or significant barriers to learning the school will aim to meet the needs outlined in the EHCP, as well as providing:

Individualised timetables and classes.

Additional small group and individual support.

Testing for access arrangements during assessments and public examinations takes place during the autumn term of Year 10 (or if exceptional circumstances require it). These arrangements may include:

  • Using a reader/scribe
  • Extra time
  • Access to ICT

Rest breaks or a prompt usually require a letter from a medical practitioner or specialist requesting this provision.

Use of a separate room to the exam hall usually require a letter from a medical practitioner or specialist requesting this provision.

We follow the guidelines laid down by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ). We cannot offer a provision that student is not qualified for. All access arrangements are assessed via qualified and licensed external agencies.

How is the decision made about how much, or what, support my child will receive?

The SEND team works closely with all departments across the school.

Teachers can raise concerns about a student, and parents are encouraged to contact their child’s teacher if they have a concern in the first instance.

Provision for extra support is made on a need basis where possible. It is not possible to place an additional adult in every class; the SEND team has a finite level of resources and is committed to supporting the children most at need.

EHCP students are funded to reflect the provisions in their EHCP and we ensure that this is undertaken. Where in class support is recommended as part of an EHCP Hampton High aims to support core subjects as a priority.

Data is regularly checked by the class teachers. Students without an EHCP may receive some intervention if they are not making the expected progress. This could be in class or a small group intervention.

How will I know how Hampton High supports my child?

If students are to be regularly withdrawn from a lesson for a period of time the SEND team will send written confirmation of this to the home address of the students involved.

At parent’s evenings, the SENDCo will have a drop in desk whereby any parent can raise concerns and issues.

Students with an EHCP will have regular meetings with the SENDCo and SEND team throughout the academic year, parents and carers are encouraged to attend and participate in the meeting. The SEND team will contact the families to arrange these meetings.

If you have any questions or queries about the support we offer please contact your child’s form tutor, Head of Year or the SENDCo.

How will you help me to support my child’s learning?

We encourage parents to attend parent’s evenings whenever possible.

We offer homework support every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as well as open communication between the form tutor, Head of year and SEND team.

What support will there be for my child’s overall well-being?

The pastoral support team includes your child’s form tutor as the first point of contact.

Concerns can also be raised with the Head of Year.

We also have a non-teaching pastoral team that aim to support every child at Hampton High.

Hampton High has access to an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant as well as an Educational Psychologist where necessary.

You can also contact the Single Point of Access for the Richmond Borough if you would like to contact the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) using the following link:


How will the school prepare and support my child when joining Hampton High or post 16 provision?

Induction day for all Year 6 students in summer term.

Additional induction sessions for SEND students.

For students joining Hampton High during the academic year a meeting with the SENDCo may be necessary.

Families with high needs students are encouraged to contact the SENDCo to discuss the needs and support available.

The careers team will meet Year 11 students in preparation for post 16 provision.

Students with an EHCP will discuss post 16 provision during Year 10 and 11 annual reviews. This will usually involve a member of the careers team attending the review.

How will I be involved in discussions about and planning for my child’s education?

Hampton High will hold at least one parent’s evening per year for students. The SENDCo will attend these with a drop in desk for any enquiries.

The SEND team will hold annual reviews for EHCP students and regularly liaise with parents.

Parents of young people with SEND can request a meeting with the SEND team.

Hampton High will aim to regularly maintain contact via meetings and phone calls, as well as communication through the student’s planner. This communication will usually come from the form tutor or Head of Year.

Hampton High GCSE Results Summer 2019

It was a real privilege to spend the morning with our year 11 students as they came in and collected their exam results today. 65% students secured grades 9-4*, with 38% securing grades 9-5*, in line with targets set at the beginning of their GCSE course. 11% of our students achieved grades 9 – 7*. For the second year in a row, this cohort of students beat the targets set them. 35 grade 9s were awarded to our students this year. This is an increase on last year, with a smaller cohort sitting the exams. Several students stand out for particular congratulations. Tom Park secured grade 9 in all 9 of his subjects. Last year, only 732 students achieved this nationally. Marcel Holowienko, Jacob Muncey, Reea Soz and Romando Sula all achieved high total and average point scores across their subjects. Other students with outstanding attainment are Annalee James, Andre Wheeler, Ibtihaz Shahid, Sami Nawab, Abi Fisher, Levan Mastrocola, Elliot Mitchell and James Wood.  As an inclusive comprehensive school, it is important to celebrate how much progress from original starting points our students make. Students who made progress well above their targets are Elliot Mitchell, Niole Caldas Missi, Sanaz Akhlaghi, Annalee James, David Leonjev, Andrei Filipas, Marcel Holowienko, Reea Soz, Loic Wood and Ben Chester. Joel Ampaire and Jiahua Lui both secured good grades across their subjects, despite moving to Hampton High from abroad in Years 11 and 10 respectively. We also have a group of students who showed outstanding resilience in the face of adversity. These students continued to study, despite grappling with very challenging circumstances. It is testimony to their strength of character, the year group around them and the support of staff and families, that these students have been able to celebrate today. All of these success stories sum up what Hampton High is about. We are aspirational for our students and will leave no stone unturned in supporting them to achieve. Our students learn to support each other and not give up when things become challenging. This is the year group which had to cope with the most change during their time with us. It is to their credit that they have been able to succeed and now embark on the next stage of their education. Many of them will be staying with us for their sixth form studies and we look forward to them building on the fantastic success of the year 13 cohort in their A levels last week. * = grades including English and maths

Hampton High A level Results Summer 2019

It was a real privilege to see the delighted faces of our year 13 students as they came in and collected their exam results today. Over a third of our results were grade A, our results are well above the national average, with two of our students, Laurel Flatley and Alisha Mckie, securing grade As in all three of their subjects. Over 50% of our students exceeded their target grades in one or more of their subjects.  Importantly, 100% of students have secured the future destination of their choice. This achievement is testimony to the hard work of the students and their teachers, along with the support of their families. The sixth form at Hampton High is growing, and the 15 students who sat their exams in Year 13 with us this year, in collaboration with Teddington School, have set the bar high for subsequent year groups. The benefits of being a member of a small sixth form were very clear today; the students were all supportive of each other as the envelopes were opened, and their appreciation of their teachers, many of whom were with them today, was very clear. The progress which these students have made with us reflects the findings of our most recent Ofsted inspection: The leadership of the sixth form is strong. Leaders have high aspirations for students and this is reflected in the established systems which enable students to make good progress. We should like to congratulate all of our sixth form students and their families. We wish them all the very best for the next step in their future, and look forward to seeing them when they come in to visit us to let us know how they are getting on. If you would like to find out more about our sixth form and the courses on offer for the next academic year, please contact the school on with “sixth form” in the subject line.   A levels 2019 A B C D E Hampton High 34 62 86 93 100 National 25.2 51.1 75.5 90.8 97.5
