In our Academy we have high expectations of all our children and we aim to offer excellence and choice to all children, whatever their ability or needs. We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation, because we want all our children to feel that they are a valued part of our academy community.
From September 2014 the Government has made significant changes to the systems designed to support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The Children and Families Bill 2013 has extended the SEND system from birth to 25, giving young people and their parents/carers greater control and choice in decisions and ensuring their needs are properly met.
Here are some links to useful websites for parents, where you can seek further information and advice on supporting children with additional needs at home;
The parenting team in Haverhill are offering courses throughout the year for parents of children with additional needs. This training offers support and strategies for parents - check out this flyer for the upcoming dates.
