SEND

Special Education Needs in our School

At Ash Grove Academy we have a whole school approach to children with additional needs and/or disabilities.

We differentiate or personalise our curriculum to ensure that all children can access the teaching in our classrooms.

We have a special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO); Mrs Lisle.  Her duties include supporting the class teachers and ensuring that all children have access to the curriculum and fulfil their potential.

The Children & Families Act 2014 and the new SEN Code of Practice have highlighted many changes within SEND. One of these changes has been the introduction of each school providing a Local Offer. Our Local Offer can be found below and provides information on our school provision for SEND.

The Cheshire East Toolkit for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) is aimed at all educational providers, and outlines the provision and support that Cheshire East Council expects to be in place in all educational settings which support children and young people with SEND in Cheshire East.  You can read more about this toolkit using the link given below:
