Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Students with special educational needs from Years 7 to 11 will find support available to them from our integrated services team. Intensive support is coordinated within our specialist integrated support area. A key strand of this work is the development of literacy and numeracy skills, but students may also be supported in lessons in a range of subjects to give them full access to the curriculum and to develop their skills effectively.

The academy also meets the needs of students with physical difficulties, social interaction and communication difficulties and behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.

In meeting these needs, the academy seeks to ensure that the curriculum is accessible but challenging, engaging, enjoyable, progressive and leads to achievement for all.
