SEND at South Norwood



Inclusion is at the heart of our school. It is expected that all children will participate in learning and adaptations will be made to ensure that all children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

Children learn and develop in different ways and may need extra help and support at various points throughout their time at school. Lessons which include practical experiences set the foundations for lifelong learning and enable children to apply skills to real life context.

Work is modified to support learning in the classroom. Adapting resources and activities which focus on personalised curriculum ensures accessibility for all and reduces to barriers to learning.

Provision for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

The Pioneer Academy Trust Mantra confirms the commitment to ‘Putting children first’ and ‘enabling all children to make excellent progress’. This is translated into practice at South Norwood, The Pioneer Academy. Provision for children with special educational needs is Outstanding. OfSTED reported that: ‘Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make exceptional progress from their individual starting points.  This is due to outstanding leadership, characterised by careful tracking of individual pupils, and effective, timely support and intervention programmes.'
