Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

We support all our children through first quality teaching and differentiation. This means that learning activities are planned according to the level the child is working at so that they can make progress and adjustments can be made to support them whilst they learn

The school follows a graduated approach to meeting learning difficulties has been designed so that parent/carers will be informed if their child has been identified as requiring additional support.

The SENDCo, Mrs Cadman, will make sure that all necessary school staff are aware of your child’s needs and worries.

If your child has been identified with extra educational needs, an Individual Learning Plan will be written with the teacher and shared with you and your child.

If your child has medical needs, a care plan and pupil profile will be written and shared with you.

All staff have access to these plans. The plans identify how your child should be helped to succeed and make progress. These plans will be reviewed regularly.

The SEND School Local Offer sets out what we at Chadsmead Academy feel we can offer as an Academy to support children with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) and answers questions regarding Special Educational Needs and Difficulties and the SEND Code of Practice.
