Our Beliefs and values with regard to SEND
The vision for all our students is inclusion, ensuring that they have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and to provide an environment where students can grow in confidence and self-esteem and develop independence.
We endeavour to foster an atmosphere in which students experience a sense of belonging at Joseph Leckie Academy and feel that they are able to make a contribution to the school community irrespective of their status. We believe that every child has a right to enjoy and achieve. This includes students with special educational needs and disabilities. We also believe that every teacher is a teacher of SEND.
In order to achieve this, Joseph Leckie Academy will:
- Ensure that all students with special educational needs have their needs identified and met.
- Operate a whole - Academy approach to the management and provision of support for special educational needs.
- Make effective provision to ensure inclusion.
- Offer full access to a broad, balanced, differentiated and relevant curriculum.
- Ensure that the progress of all students with special educational needs is carefully monitored.
- Provide advice and support to all staff working with students with special educational needs students.
