Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Information Report/Local Offer 2016/17

The JCB Academy Local Offer gives clear and concise information to parents/carers regarding the support and provision available to young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability. In accordance with the Special Educational Needs (SEN) Code of Practice 0 to 25 years (2015) legislation, the Student Support Team has implemented the ‘SEN Support’ system which categorises, and therefore assesses and supports students in terms of their needs, namely:

  • Cognitive & Learning
  • Physical Health
  • Communication & Interaction
  • Social, Emotional & Mental Health

The JCB Academy has always sought to provide an inclusive curriculum which can be tailored, where applicable through reasonable adjustments to meet the individual student’s needs; providing them with every opportunity for them to reach their full potential. This is achieved through implementing an established transition process which begins when the young person is first offered a place.
