Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

At RWBA we believe that all students are individuals each with specific talents and needs. Some will find learning easy, others will find it hard. All students will have good and bad days. Nevertheless, RWBA is committed to providing an inclusive education for all young people, regardless of ability, gender, language, ethnic or cultural origin. Our aim is for all students to leave the academy with the skills necessary to make a successful transition to adulthood in an ever-changing and highly technological world, whether it is their intention to move on to further or higher education, training or work.

We work hard to support a range of pupil needs from moderate learning difficulties, SpLD (Dyslexia), sensory impairments, social and emotional difficulties and speech, language and communication difficulties through to individuals on the autistic spectrum and in particular those having Asperger’s Syndrome. We also liaise effectively with a wide variety of external agencies and individuals to focus on improving outcomes for all students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Likewise, Gifted and Talented students are well catered for with a wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities to stretch them academically and ensure they reach their potential.

All students follow a broad and balanced curriculum, based on the National Curriculum and have access to many extra-curricular activities to further enhance their learning. Teaching and non-teaching staff work together to provide for children who have special educational needs; normal routines and procedures are designed in such a way that, wherever practicable, no child is excluded from any activity. All teachers are teachers of students with special educational needs and disability and have a responsibility to ensure each one is valued and their self-esteem promoted. We also work in close partnership with parents/guardians as it is important that they take an active and valued role in their child’s education.

Understanding the road risks in your local area

As many of us do, AXA Insurance and Road Safety Analysis believe that one child casualty on Britain’s roads is too much.

The data is presented by local area in order to aid the understanding of risk – it’s not just about killed or seriously injured, but about any incident reported to the police. Although road safety issues may arise due to a myriad of different reasons including proximity to busy roads and local speed limits, schools play a pivotal role in mitigating these risks by investing time in road safety education programmes.
