There is no set date for schools to reopen. Schools will remain closed to most until scientific advice indicates it is right to reopen and the five tests set out to beat this virus have been met.

Thanks to the teacher who called to make sure our son is ok while he's stuck at home. Really important that all children, but especially those who are vulnerable, are checked on by schools during this time.

SEN & Disabilities

All students have the right to achieve their maximum academic and social potential.  At the Academy, we believe that all students have learning differences rather than learning difficulties, and it is our policy to identify and assess these differences so that learning is supported and differentiated to ensure outstanding progress is made by all students.

We offer a range of support to develop teachers' expertise as well as additional support within the classroom.  This includes drop-in sessions, in class training and observations from the SENCO, as well as specialist advice and input within the classroom.  

If you have any additional questions, concerns or worries, please do not hesitate to contact the SEND team.


Student Support Centre

Our SENCO, Learning Support Assistants and Mentors are based within our Student Support Centre, where students can access a range of specialist intervention as appropriate.

Bexley Local Offer

Information about what Bexley Local Authority can offer can be found at Bexley Local Offer.

This website has been co-produced with the help of parents, professionals and young people and is under continuous development.  Their aim is to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for information and services that support children and young people with special educational needs and disability aged 0-25 years old.


Our Vision for SEND Students

The Academy is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education for all students.  We believe that all students, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum.  This curriculum should be accessible to all, ensuring they are fully included in all aspects of Academy life.  We recognise that students learn at different rates, and that there are many factors affecting achievement, including ability, emotional state, age and maturity.

We are particularly aware of the needs of our students, for whom maturity is a crucial factor in terms of readiness to learn.  We know from experience that many students, at some time in their Academy career, may experience difficulties which affect their learning, and we recognise that these may be long or short term.  At the Academy, we aim to identify these needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning contexts which enable every student to achieve their full potential.

A summary of the provision for SEND students in Key Stage 3 & 4 can be found below.  It is also worth noting that from 1st September 2014, there have been some changes made to the SEND legislation, following the Children’s and Families Act 2014.  A summary of key changes are below, with full details available on the Government website.

The SEND Code of Practice Key Changes

The new code of practice covers the 0-25 age range, and includes guidance relating to disabled children and young people as well as those with special educational needs.

  • There is a clearer focus on the participation of children and young people and parents in decision-making at individual and strategic levels
  • There is a stronger focus on high aspirations and on improving outcomes for children and young people
  • It includes guidance on the joint planning and commissioning of services to ensure close co-operation between education, health and social care
  • It includes guidance on publishing a Local Offer of support for children and young people with SEND
  • For children and young people with more complex needs, a co-ordinated assessment process and the new Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) will replace Statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDAs)
  • There is a greater focus on support that enables those with SEND to succeed in their education and make a successful transition to adulthood
