Aspire Academy Trust

Special Educational Needs

All children are valued, respected and welcomed in Aspire academies, whatever their additional educational need. We will support their learning and ensure they are fully included in all school activities, making full use of externally provided facilities where appropriate.

Children with additional needs are identified through a combination of observations of the children as individuals within their classes by our experienced staff, tracking the outcomes of assessments and through discussions with parents. Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators work with the class teachers and teaching assistants to create programmes of support that meet the needs of the child and will liaise with a range of external agencies, as and when appropriate.
