Inclusion and SEND

Students with individual needs

A full copy of the Academy's Individual Needs policy can be found in the Policies section of this website or via the link on the right hand side of this page.  You can also download our SEND report via the link on the right.  Some key points for parents appear below but please remember to contact your child's tutor or Head of House if you have any questions or concerns which are not answered on the website.

All children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC) will be considered for a place at Wren Academy should their parents select the school.  Other children with learning needs will be subject to the admissions policy as for all other applicants.

Young people with disabilities will also be subject to the application policy. In exceptional cases, children with disabilities may be given special consideration for a place at Wren if their parents/carers can convincingly demonstrate that it would not be appropriate for them to attend another school.

We consult with nurseries and primary schools before children start at Wren and each child and their parent receive an individual interview.  Wherever possible, children are visited in their nursery or primary setting. We then thoroughly assess children before and on their arrival at the Academy. In these ways, we are confident that individual needs will be identified and a range of appropriate support and intervention strategies are put in place. These are individualised so that all young people are enabled to make the maximum progress of which they are capable. It is of fundamental importance to us that students are not disadvantaged because of learning needs and that they are given appropriate support to thrive at school. Details of the provision offered to young people with individual learning needs can be found in the curriculum statement within the Learning section of this website.

For details of our access arrangements for young people with individual needs please see the Accessibility Policy in the Policies section of this website.
