Students with Special Educational Needs are fully integrated within the academy. Those students who require additional support for whatever reason, will be noted according to the Code of Practice at School Action, Action Plus or Statement.
The SENCO and the SEND team provide support to teaching staff. The nature of this support is negotiable and may be determined by the needs of the individual student or teaching group. The support may involve LSA support in lessons, preparing differentiated resources or advice from the SENCO.
Students in Year 7 and 8 are placed on intervention programmes in order to raise standards in both reading and spelling.
