SEND Provision

FACE Walsall Survey for Parents/Carers of children and young people with SEND.

Dear Parent/Carer,
FACE Walsall, Walsall’s local parent carer forum, is inviting all families in Walsall who have children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) to complete a short survey.  FACE Walsall is an independent organisation but they work in partnership with Walsall Local Authority and education, social care and health services to ensure the views of parents/carers and young people are represented and to ensure that local services meet the needs of local children, young people and their families.

FACE Walsall are encouraging parents/carers of children and young people with SEND to complete the short survey via the link below so that they can gather further information about their experience of lockdown and the support they have received and need during the Coronavirus pandemic.  Responses will be anonymous but will be used by FACE Walsall to inform the Local Authority and partner services about what families think has worked well and what they think needs to be further developed/changed.

The online survey can be accessed via the link below, it should only take a few minutes to complete and your views are very important to us. If you require this information/survey in another format then please contact
If you leave your email address at the end of this survey, you will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win a £50 ASDA voucher.

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.
