Academy @ Worden is a nurturing school where we aim to educate all pupils including those with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). We believe in participation and progress for all, and aim to create an inclusive culture with high expectations of all pupils.  

In line with the SEND Code of Practice, our teaching staff take the lead in our SEND provision and ensure the needs of pupils with SEND are met.  All teachers are required to plan lessons which are accessible to all pupils, including those with SEND.  Our high-quality teaching offers a broad and balanced curriculum adapted to meet individual needs.  We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.  

Academy @ Worden recognises the importance of early identification and intervention in order to address the needs of SEND pupils.  As such, a range of approaches to develop independent learning are used to ensure a measure of challenge and support for SEND pupils.  These can include small group working, 1:1 or additional support in lessons. The Learning Support Department also offers a lunchtime club, after school Homework Club and interventions for developing gross and fine motor skills, organisation, and social communication.
