We are focused on developing self-confidence, independence and self-esteem to enable to students to overcome any potential barriers to learning.

Our team of highly trained teaching assistants and behaviour mentors work alongside the needs of students, ensuring the curriculum and learning environments can be accessed by all.

Standard provision and enhanced provision
The academy aims to support all pupils with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) through provision that provides reasonable adjustments to cater for individual learning needs.

This support is further enhanced by the delivery of a range of training opportunities for all staff relating to a variety of SEND. We offer a graduated response to ensure needs of students are met either in class, through small groups or on a 1-to-1 basis.

Any support or provision that is additional to and/or different to our standard provision, students are supported with SEN K provision or EHC where appropriate and close and effective relationships with outside agencies are maintained and nurtured.
