'Special Educational Needs and Disabilities' (SEND) and 'Gifted and Talented'
(You can also ask for a paper copy in Reception).
All our children are treated and valued as individuals, including those who are identified as being as 'Gifted and Talented (G&T) or those who are identified as having Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We have processes on place to identify children with specific needs, and draw upon a wide range of strategies to support these children.
We liaise regularly with specialists working for outside agencies (such as the Learning Support Service, the Educational Psychology Service and the Speech and Language Therapy Service) to ensure that support is accurately targetted.
We organise a whole range of small group and 1:1 activities, to support children with academic and social needs, as well as those who have family or personal issues which may result in the children benefitting from counselling support.
We believe that parents and the Academy, are partners in the learning process of all children, and as such, each child identified as having a specific need may have an individual set of targets alongside appropriate strategies to support the child's learning and promote achievement. These are developed by staff and in consultation with parents. They are monitored and reviewed at least every half term by staff, and through regular dialogue with parents.
