Our photographer today seems very interested in different land uses in town centres and the urban rural fringe, and the impact it has on the environment. pic.twitter.com/1QnYG1nQKg

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.

At  Mark Hall Academy we believe that all pupils deserve access to Quality First teaching. We fully embrace the idea that provision for pupils with special educational needs is a matter for the school as a whole. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils, whatever their need or disability, make good progress through both pastoral and curriculum support.

The SEND department has a number of highly committed staff, which includes the SENDCo, Assistant SENDCo and Teaching Assistants (TAs).

To ensure high quality support, TAs  work to ensure that pupils who have SEND needs have the support and tools they need to become well-rounded pupils.

The SEND department works with parents, carers, teachers and outside agencies to ensure that pupils realise their potential to achieve, giving them in the best possible learning environment appropriate to the student’s needs and ability.

For pupils with literacy and numeracy difficulties we provide support through the Fresh Start programme, MYTUTOR and LEXIA Power-up. For pupils with SEMH needs we provide bespoke counselling sessions. At lunch time we provide a quiet, calm environment in our sensory space for pupils who prefer to spend time away in peace and quiet.

Parents are encouraged to maintain a close working partnership with the school to support their children with special educational needs to achieve their best.
