Inclusion & SEN

Inclusion & SEN

We recognise that every student has different needs and from the personalised curriculum to the support from learning mentors, our aim is create an environment where every student can succeed and make the most of their time at KSA. Students with special educational needs are well supported within the Academy but staff work towards ensuring they become independent learners. Students' progress is monitored carefully. The inclusion department provides specialist tuition for students with additional educational needs through individual and small group programmes of study. It works in ways that are matched to the student’s particular needs providing, for example, literacy support and/or social, emotional and behaviour interventions. Partnership with students, their parents and other outside agencies ensures that students make good progress.

The varied teams that make up the school are committed to providing the best possible care and support to all students, especially those students who are faced with difficulties and challenges that present barriers to their learning.

These teams are keen to strengthen the partnerships between student, parents, Academy and other agencies to ensure that students receive the best possible support.

Vice Principal Kirsty Farrar oversees this department and has responsibility for Learning Support and Foundation Learning.

SENCO Kayleigh Incles is responsible for co-ordinating alternate provision.
