SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, DISABILITIES AND YOUR CHILD
We value all children and aim to provide an inclusive atmosphere that does not discriminate on the grounds of gender, ethnicity, culture, religion or ability. The school does all that it can to ensure equal access to the whole curriculum for all children with Special Educational Needs, which includes children with disabilities. Procedures are regularly updated following our adoption of the Disability Equality Scheme which is a legal requirement in all schools, along with meeting the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. The school does all that it can to ensure that all parts of the building are accessible to all children including those with Special Educational Needs, which includes children with disabilities.
Elevate Academy trust have a SEND HUB Strategy which enables SENCO's to work across all of the trust schools to share experience and expertise. This team includes experienced SENCOs and specialist teachers. The SEND Hub team carry out regular visits to assess and support specific children and deliver training to all staff. This is in addition to the usual support available from the Local Authority SEN inclusion service. .
