Special Education Resource Centre (SERC)

The Special Education Resource Centre (SERC) supports pupils who have a range of learning difficulties, such as:

  • Physical disabilities
  • Autistic spectrum/Aspergers
  • Dyslexia and specific learning difficulties
  • Medical needs
  • Global and severe learning difficulties
  • Pupils who have been excluded are being home educated
  • Difficulties with handwriting and recording work
  • Communication difficulties
  • Pupils who require high level of differentiation.

SERC visit and assess pupils aged 2 to 19 years old who have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHC) and in some cases, are on SEN support.

Pupils are referred to SERC by SENCOs, Educational Psychologists, Local Education Authority (LEA) SEN Panel and other advisory agencies.

How do you refer a pupil?

  1. Raise your concerns with SENCO, plan and implement strategies. If these are unsuccessful discuss referral with SENCO.
  2. Referral to SERC via SERC referral form by SENCO or Head
  3. Pupils will be seen in order of referral ( there is a considerable waiting list as this service is only funded for 1 day a week)

Support may be offered through:

  • Individual assessment, conclusions provided in a written  assessment 
  • If a pupil is assessed as requiring access to equipment the report will be referred to LEA SEN Panel – they will consider each case.
  • Pupils may have their own hardware provided (laptop, desktop. NEO etc) and software packages will be recommended for school to provide.
