Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At the City of Peterborough Academy we work very hard to support all of our pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. We also work closely with our partner primary schools to ensure that we have a thorough understanding of the individual needs of our pupils when they start with us.
The transition from primary to secondary education can be a daunting time for pupils. We develop careful plans to ensure our pupils are prepared well for this move. For some pupils, we offer a bespoke programme to help them have a smooth transition. Once at the Academy, we provide a range of strategies including:
- Individual support in the classroom or through individual interventions
- A curriculum catering for the needs of every child
- One-to-one catch-up reading programmes including Accelerated Reader, Lexia and Toe-by-Toe
- Monitoring of statement reviews and pupil guidelines
Our work in this area is led by the Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Mrs A Emmerson and Deputy Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Mrs K Newman.
If you have any concerns about your child please contact the Academy on (01733) 821440.
