At Upwell Academy, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, health professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.
The following documents will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can support your children. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact our Senco at firstname.lastname@example.org.
