Supporting Additional Needs
The Academy encourages high aspirations, high motivation and high achievement for all. This vision applies equally to students with any kind of additional need. Our philosophy is to educate students as far as possible within the normal provision of the Academy, which includes a strong teaching model and early intervention with extra teaching and individual attention for students who are having difficulty reaching the expected standards; student progress is monitored closely and intervention for those who are not making expected progress is highly tailored and responsive to assessment data and needs.
Additional individualised support for students is provided under the direction of the Additional Needs Team. This team is for all students – be they disabled, more able, dyslexic, dyspraxic, with learning or behavioural difficulties, or for students who just need advice and support. Our experienced team will always be there to help and support the students. Should you require any assistance or have any queries regarding the Academy’s provision for your child, please contact the team who will be happy to meet with you.
