Support for Learning

Our Support for Learning Team supports students who have special educational needs or disabilities.

All students at the Academy are entitled to support for their learning needs enabling them to develop skills, knowledge and understanding to their full potential and maximum personal benefit. Some students need more support than others, in order to achieve their potential and we are committed to providing that.

We define special educational needs in terms of a staged level of difficulty a child has compared with the majority of children of the same age. Provision and resources are available at each stage.

‘No Child should be left behind’

Principles

We believe that:

  • All students are entitled to a broad and balanced and differentiated curriculum that satisfies individual learning needs by realistic and achievable methods.
  • Students are entitled to access the national curriculum
  • Students’ learning happens alongside their physical, emotional and spiritual development
  • All teachers at the Academy are responsible for meeting the needs of the students they teach
  • Parents have an important role in deciding suitable support
  • Students have a valuable role in helping to design effective support programmes

Provision at The Academy for students with Special Educational Needs

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator organises and monitors the support for our students.

The structures and systems that may be used are:

  • Literacy and/or numeracy intervention programmes
  • Lexia programme
  • Reading and comprehension groups
  • Individual sessions working on ALP targets
  • Personalised curriculum e.g. ALP pathway
  • In class support
  • Homework clubs
  • Mentoring
  • ALP (Access to Learning Plan) is written and used to support learning
  • Review of progress with SENDCO, Sonya Remblance, colleagues and support staff. This is discussed with parents/carers and student at our range of parents’ evenings and settling in evenings
