Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

The Government introduced changes to The Children and Families Act in March 2014 to improve services for children and young people and their families.  These changes will make sure there is a greater “integration between educational provisions and training provision, health and social care provision, where this would promote wellbeing and improve the quality of provision for disabled young people and those with SEN”. 

At Whetley Academy we are committed to providing an inclusive education for all our children.  This means that any child who may have Special Educational Needs or a Disability (SEND) will have access to additional or specialist support throughout their life at our academy.

Our SENDCo works closely with the class teacher, the child and parents to ensure the correct support is given.
