SEND Provision at Sedgehill Academy
At Sedgehill Academy, students with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) are fully integrated into the life of the school. The school believes that students learn most effectively when they feel valued and their efforts and achievements are recognised. The Curriculum for students with SEND is the Curriculum offered to all students, including those with exceptional abilities and disabilities. Students have access to all clubs, visits and trips. When required, a more bespoke curriculum can be offered to meet the neds of students.
This page should be read alongside our SEND policy which can be found here.
The SEN Co-ordinator (SENCO) for the school is Ms Oragano who is also the Vice Principal. She is responsible for the day to day operation of the SEN and Disability policies. The SEND department consists of a SEND manager, two deputy SENDCos and five Teaching Assistants.
Any concerns regarding SEND provision in the school are dealt with initially by Ms Oragano who can be contacted on 020 86988911 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Principal is also available to assist in addressing any unresolved issues.
The success of the school’s policy for SEN and Disability is dependent on a whole school approach to supporting students with SEND. All teachers in every department have the responsibility to provide the learning opportunities necessary to meet all students’ needs and to ensure the progress of students with SEN and/or Disability. This is monitored closely by Heads of Department and the SENDCo. SEND provision, in conjunction with the arrangements for pastoral care, reflects the Academy’s values, which celebrates every child as an individual.
