Special Educational Needs

SEND Policy

The staff and governors of Sandal Magna Community Academy aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all children; that includes setting suitable learning challenges, responding to pupils’ diverse learning needs and overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessments.

The Governing Body and teaching staff will do their best to ensure that the necessary provision is made for any pupil who has SEND (Special Educational Needs or Disability) and ensure that, where the Headteacher or the appropriate governor has been informed by the LEA (Local Education Authority) that a pupil has SEND, those needs will be made known to all who are likely to teach them.

SEND Information Report

As part of Wakefield’s ‘Local Offer’ over the course of this year we will be working with our parents and carers to ensure our provision for children with SEND gets even better and that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.

Inclusion and Special Educational Needs

We are committed to be fully inclusive where all members of our school are treated fairly and equally. By working in partnership with children, families and partner agencies, we ensure that children receive the support they need to access all aspects of school life. We respect each child as an individual and have high expectations and aspirations for all

If you have any questions or concerns about your child and would like to speak to us at school, then please do not hesitate to contact our SENCO - Becky Abernethy.

Once you have done this, if you remain concerned and want to make a complaint about the school's SEN support please follow the school's complaint procedure.
