Special Educational Needs

The ‘Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years’ defines special educational provision as ‘additional to or different from that made generally for others of the same age. This means provision that goes beyond the differentiated approaches and learning arrangements normally provided’ 

‘Where pupils are falling behind or making inadequate progress given their age and starting point they should be given extra support’.

At All Saints’ Academy we use a graduated approach to meeting the additional needs of our students. This includes those who have been identified as requiring support for Additional Educational Needs (AEN) as well as those who have been formally assessed by the Local Authority and who have a Statement of Special Educational Need (Statement) or an Education, Health and Social Care plan (EHC plan).

Our Head of SENCo is Mr Mudge, if you have any enquiries please email:
