Supporting students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is important in ensuring their progress and achievement.

Our personalised learning team works with students to develop appropriate plans to engage them fully in learning. Some students who require more targeted support will be placed in our nurture group. This small group of students has a dedicated teaching space for a proportion of their lessons with specific teacher and classroom support.

The academy is situated in a purpose-built modern building, ensuring that any students with disabilities are able to fully access all areas of the school. This includes lift access to first floor classrooms, welfare facilities and disabled parking.

Please find below our SEND report, detailing how we cater for students with additional needs, together with our SEND policy.
