A national charity has recognised Prenton High School for Girls as being an ‘ADHD Friendly school’.
Presented by the ADHD Foundation, the award highlights the school’s commitment to being a safe, nurturing and welcoming place that supports students to reach their academic potential.
Prenton High School received special recognition for its assessment system and the overall quality of special educational needs (SEND) support it provides to students. As well as supporting pupils with self-calming strategies and offering regular opportunities for physical activity during the day, the school also provides regular training for teachers and parents and is continuously developing new, innovative learning experiences.
Head of Learning and Support, Helen McGarry said:
“With October being ADHD Awareness Month there is no better time for us to have received this accolade.
“We are committed to supporting all of our students and are so proud that this has been recognised. We will continue to work with the ADHD Foundation to increase awareness and understanding within our school community.”
The ADHD Foundation works in partnership with individuals, families, doctors, teachers and other agencies. The charity aims to improve emotional wellbeing, educational attainment, behaviour and life chances through better understanding and self-management of numerous learning difficulties.
