My name is Miss Ratcliffe and I am the Deputy SENDCo. I lead the Support and Guidance team day to day at Stoke Park. I have been doing this role for 4 years and my job is to make sure that all students who require additional support get what they need in order to achieve. I have worked with students with additional needs for the last 14 years and during this time I have gained the knowledge and experience needed to support students with a wide range of need from Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and SEMH needs.

I also work closely with all outside agencies that offer support to help students. These include the educational psychologist, visual impairment team, and SEMHL.

Mrs Wilcox

My name is Mrs Wilcox and I am part of the support and guidance team at stoke park school. I have worked at stoke park for 12 years and my role is to support and nurture our students with autism and ADHD.

I think it is important to get to know our future students before they join stoke park in September so that they, and their parents/guardians, feel more comfortable and informed about the transition to secondary school.

Throughout their time at Stoke Park, I work closely with students and their parents to ensure that they have the best possible experience.

All staff are given in depth information about our ASC/ADHD students – their likes and dislikes, strategies that work for them and any other information to ensure their needs are met.

If you have any concerns about your child’s ASC diagnosis or need more information about the support that they receive in school please email me on swilcox@stokepark.coventry.sch.uk

Mrs Walford

My name is Mrs Walford and I work with the Support and Guidance Team at Stoke Park. I have worked at

Stoke Park School for 19 years and my main role is to work with our students who have an identified Speech, Language or Communication Need. Additionally, I deliver an ASDAN qualification to identified KS4 students as part of our alternative curriculum.

It is important all our learners have the support they require to make progress so part of my role is to work with our young people supporting their learning in lessons; I also deliver interventions to small groups and work with some students 1:1 on their identified area of need.

Communication with both our students and parents is crucial so I ensure I build up a positive relationship with both to assure the best support is offered to our young learners.

I communicate regularly with our teaching staff to make certain they are all informed of the identified support strategies to use with our students with an identified Speech, Language and Communication Need to secure their needs are met.

My name is Miss Cleaver, and I am part of the support and guidance team at Stoke Park School. This is my first-year teaching at Stoke Park, and I teach Physical Education, Maths, Science and Inclusion.

I am passionate about creating an inclusive environment where all pupils are able to access the curriculum at a level where they feel confident, supported and challenged to achieve their best. I believe it is important for pupils to have fun and enjoy their learning so that they develop the desire to excel.

Mr Rowe

My name is Mr Rowe and I work within the science department and with year 10 as a learning mentor at Stoke Park School.

I have worked at stoke park for 3 years now and my role is to support our teachers and students within the Science department.

I believe it is important to liaise with teachers to discuss different ways to support SEND students within the classroom. This is beneficial for both the students and the teachers as we share ideas on what has worked well when supporting students and we can then share this with different subjects to help give the best support possible to our students.

If you have any concerns about your child’s learning needs in Science or Year 10 students please email me on lrowe@stokepark.coventry.sch.uk

Mrs Kaur

Hello, my name is Mrs Kaur. As an alumni of Stoke Park School, I understand the values of the school from both a student and staff perspective. I have been working in the Student Support and Guidance team for over 18 years, as well as being attached to the Humanities department. This academic year I have also provided additional support to year 9.

My role involves supporting students and making sure that they excel in their Humanities subjects. If students are unable to focus on a task, I will work alongside them and break the tasks down to ensure they are more accessible to achieve and therefore students will have a clearer understanding of what is to be done.

To support the year 9 team, I provide a homework club after school which students can attend if they are struggling with homework and finding it a challenge to complete, as well as offering support to them during mornings, break and lunch times.

If you have any concerns about your child’s learning needs in Humanities or Year 9 students please email me on hkaur@stokepark.coventry.sch.uk

Mrs Bruce

My name is Mrs Bruce and I am the EAL Coordinator. My role at Stoke Park is to welcome and nurture newly arrived students who don’t have English as a first language.

I meet with them and their families before they join Stoke Park to see what schooling they have had and to do an assessment of their English and knowledge in other curriculum areas. Once the students are attending school, I liaise with year teams and departments to make sure that they have all the skills and information necessary for their learning journey.

Once in lessons, I work with the students and teachers to ensure that the teachers are aware of our EAL students’ needs and that they have all the strategies and support in place to give them the best learning experience possible. I also provide additional Literacy intervention for students who have lower levels of English on arrival.

If you have any concerns about your child’s EAL needs please e mail me on cbruce@stokepark.coventry.sch.uk
