Learning Development

The Academy’s Inclusion and Achievement provision is based on the philosophy that all children are of equal importance and have an entitlement to the full range of curricular experiences and opportunities. There is a named co-ordinator for Special Educational Needs who has responsibility for the support programmes for pupils who need some additional or alternative provision.


Many children at some time during their school life will experience difficulties which require additional support. For some children the problem may be short lived whilst others may need long term support. The academy believes in working in close partnership with parents to achieve our aims of supporting children.




  • Specialist support staff may withdraw pupils from some mainstream English or Mathematics lessons to give additional literacy and/or numeracy teaching in small group situations.
  • Support teachers and Learning Assistants work in the classroom alongside colleagues in a wide range of subject areas, so that they can benefit from a wide and balanced curriculum.
  • Specific language support is provided to help bilingual pupils.


The school works in close consultation with a wide range of outside agencies including:


  • The School Nursing Service

  • Educational Psychologist

  • Sensory Support Service

  • Learning and Behaviour Support Service

  • Autism Support Service

  • The Looked After Children Education Service
