Inclusive Learning and SEND: Meeting Individual Needs
The Governing Board, in cooperation with the Principal, determines the school’s general policy and approach to the provision of education for a child with special educational needs.
The Governing Body of Lord Grey Academy welcomes students with special educational needs and disabilities to the school and aims to provide a secure learning environment in which students with special educational needs or disabilities are given opportunities to make progress in their learning. The school aims to provide education for all students. Our Inclusive Learning Faculty sits at the heart of the school.
The dedicated team of staff oversee various aspects of school life – SEND provision; EAL provision; the operation of the Learning Support Unit; oversight of the Isolated Learning Room; some small group or individual teaching; ASDAN CoPE; initial induction of new students; CATs testing; exam dispensations; stretch and challenge for the more able and Eden Centre provision. The staff carry out lots of mentoring, coaching and emotional support. The team also offer small group tuition in literacy and numeracy and the faculty offers Breakfast Club and Homework Club. The LSU is a safe haven for some students at social times and the whole Inclusive Learning team are very student focused, caring and compassionate; yet rigorous that each child should and could meet his or her potential, with determined hard work. Here at Lord Grey Academy we recognise:
“We are all teachers of students with special educational needs.”
“The need for assessment of a student’s special educational needs followed by appropriate action and intervention reflecting the school’s inclusive ethos.”
