SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability)

Sir Michael Wilkins has said that ‘The whole point of schools is that children come first and everything we do must reflect this single goal.’

We welcome children to our academies and we prioritise admission for children with SEND.

We have a comprehensive support programme and our policy is available below.
