Education

You may feel you need extra help to take your exams in year 11. Talk to your SENCO or Examinations Officer at school as soon as possible about Access Arrangements.

Access arrangements may include:

  • extra time
  • a computer
  • a smaller individual room

They are based on evidence of need, the normal way of working in the classroom and must be suited to the student and the exam.

Transport and travel

You might want to think about Independent Travel Training. This gives you the confidence and skills to travel to and from school or college on your own.

See Independent Travel Training for more information.
