Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)


"The school has high expectations for all pupils, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)." OFSTED October 2003


Clee Hill Community Academy takes a truly holistic approach to supporting all our pupils whilst actively promoting a fully inclusive curriculum. We believe that pupils with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) have the right to a broad and balanced curriculum and be fully included in all aspects of school life (DfE Special Educational Needs Code of Practice 2015).


"Staff make appropriate adaptions so that all pupils can access the curriculum. They are skilled at supporting pupils who have SEND. They work with parents and agencies to provide pupils with high-quality support which
allows them to thrive." OFSTED October 2023


We believe all pupils should be encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential within a safe, nurturing and enriching learning environment. We actively encourage parents to be involved in the education of their child and see effective home school partnerships as key to pupil’s success. Our website information aims to provide an outline of what services and support is available to parents and carers to help their child succeed.

SEND Policy

Our SEND Policy outlines the provision and support available in school to support children with additional needs. In line with the Local Authority SEND Policy, we adopt the guidance offered in the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2015) for the identification and assessment of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We follow current legislation and guidance including following the implementation of the Children and Families Act (2014).

Our website aims to provide an outline of what services and support is available to parents and carers.  For further detailed information, please refer our school policies and key documents.
