Some students will, permanently or from time to time, have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children their age. Some may have disabilities, which prevent or hinder them making the use of the facilities provided for our students. We will give these students individual consideration and make special provision for them, working in partnership with others as necessary. The Governors’ intention is that the needs of all students are identified and met as soon as possible. All students whether they have special educational needs or not, must have an equal opportunity to participate in the full curriculum of the academy (including the National Curriculum) and all activities. Students with special educational needs will be encouraged to become independent and take responsibility within the college.
Everyone in the academy community – governors, staff, students and parents – has a positive and active part to play in achieving this aim.
