Special Education Needs and Disabilities
At St Edwards’ Church of England Academy, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, which celebrates, supports and respects the talents and potential of every pupil. Here we all journey together to learn through faith, grow through hope and achieve through love, allowing all to live life to the full.
Our Additional Needs Team consists of a highly qualified group of individuals who are committed to knowing our pupils exceptionally well and ensuring that every child fulfils their potential. We believe that the progress of every individual learner is of equal importance. Most importantly, every teacher at St Edward’s Church of England Academy is a teacher of every child. We are actively involved in continual professional development to ensure that all staff deliver quality first teaching; based on research relating to the needs of individual pupils.
Each pupil on the SEN register will be allocated a link TA, who will follow them through ST Edward’s. This enables the pupils to develop a close relationship, which will enhance the support they receive.
For more information, please see the SEND Policy.
