Special Educational Needs and Disability

At The Vale Primary Academy, we are committed to being fully inclusive, ensuring that all members of our school are treated fairly and equally. The Vale Primary Academy’s approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, SEND, shows our commitment to being fully inclusive. By working in partnership with children, families and partner agencies, we ensure that all children receive the support they need to access all aspects of school life. We respect each child as an individual and have high expectations and aspirations for all.

Our vision for children with special educational needs and disabilities is the same as for all children and young people – that they achieve well in their early years, at school and in college, and lead happy and fulfilled lives.

As a schol we support and implement SEND provsion inline with the DfE SEND Code of Practice.
