The SEN information report.
Sandhill View Academy (SVA) is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the pupils living in our local area. We believe that all pupils, including those identified as having special educational needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum which is accessible to them. All pupils, regardless of need, are to be fully included in all aspects of school life.
SVA believes that all pupils should be equally valued in school. SVA will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all pupils can flourish and feel safe.
SVA is committed to inclusion. Part of the Academy’s strategic planning for improvement is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties.
This does not mean that SVA will treat all learners in the same way, but that SVA will respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs. Our full SEN Policy can be found below.
The SEN Report is information for parents and carers of children who have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) and all those who have additional needs. This information outlines the support and provision they can expect to receive, if they choose to Sandhill View Academy for their children.
