Supporting our SEND students

At Shenley Academy all students including those who have a disability and/or special educational needs are welcome. We want to inspire all of our students to fulfil their ambitions and value effort and hard work, but we acknowledge that not all students are the same and that is why we believe it is important to know every child in our academy.

All of our teachers receive appropriate training related to SEND, and are ready to adapt their lessons to cater for your child’s needs

The Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) at Shenley Academy leads the Learning Support team who work together with all staff to provide the best possible support for all students.

Effective assessment and provision for children with SEND or any other additional needs will be secured in partnership with parent/carers, the young person, our academy network, the Local Authority and any other appropriate external services. Support is provided for any student who at any time in their school career requires additional support or provision to help them to achieve success.

We also believe that maintaining your child’s safety and wellbeing is central to their development, and therefore we aim to create an environment in which differences are celebrated.
