Special Educational Needs and Disability
As well as meeting the needs of those children with a statement of SEN we are also committed to meeting the needs of other children with SEN within the resources that are available to us.
We welcome children with SEN and will follow the revised code of practice in identifying, assessing and supporting those students. Through individual education plans we will provide support, which is tailored to cater for each student’s unique situation.
Support may be given in class, in a small group or through withdrawal classes and will be delivered by a skilled team of teachers, learning support assistants and specialist behaviour support workers.
If your child has SEN, which you would like to discuss in more details, please contact Director of Learning, SENCO.
The Academy will consult the local authority and the governing bodies of other schools in the area as necessary for co-ordinating provision for students with SEN.
The Academy will have regard to the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2001) and any guidance issued by the Secretary of State for Schools and Families, relating to sections 316 and 316A of the Education Act 1996.
Sunderland Local Offer
Local authorities must publish, in one place, information about provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
This is being referred to as the 'local offer'.
The local offer provides clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available. It will directly involve children and young people with SEN, parents and carers, and service providers in its development and review as well as informing future service provision.
