We welcome children to our academies and we prioritise admission for children with SEND.
We have a comprehensive support programme and our policy and local offers are available via the links below.
Nottinghamshire’s Local Offer: Supporting families with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities aged 0 – 25
If you’ve ever struggled to find the right information or service for a child or young person with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), then check out the SEND Local Offer website.
The Local Offer brings together information across education, health, social care and the voluntary and independent sectors and is designed specifically for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities and their families.
Use the Local Offer for ideas for things to do; details of nurseries, schools and colleges; help with getting around; advice and access to health and social care; employment and training; advice on Independent Living, and more.
It’s free and impartial and will help you find information about what services are available, or signpost you to somebody who can provide you with the information you need, through one easily searchable web site. Visit www.nottinghamshire.sendlocaloffer.org.uk. Accessible through a PC, tablet or smartphone.
Any concerns or complaints about SEN provision by parents or carers should be initially raised informally, whether by e-mail, letter or a telephone call with the SENDCo.
The SENDCo will investigate and report back within a week. If the parents/carers continue to be dissatisfied, a complaint should be raised as per the academy’s complaints procedure by completing the Complaint Form at Appendix 1. Academy Complaints Procedure
