Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Alde Valley Academy is a fully inclusive. All students are welcome and we have experience of working with students with learning, physical, social, emotional and mental health needs and sensory disabilities.

We aim to be as flexible as possible in meeting the individual needs of our students. Our learning support team offer, in-class support, small group interventions and mentoring. LSA support is provided as appropriate to student needs.

Student needs are met within the mainstream classrooms wherever possible with quality, differentiated teaching and support. We have an OASIS (Outreach and Support in School) centre; this is a place which is in place to helps any student who requires numeracy and literacy intervention, emotional or social support.

We will consider the views of the student and work with parents for a student-centred approach.

All our students are offered full access to a broad and balanced curriculum in a nurturing environment.

We regularly review our SEN provision and evaluate to ensure student needs are being met.
