Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy – The Bec Trust
Learning Changes Lives
All Croydon Schools and Academies are committed to and adopt a similar approach to meeting the needs of all pupils including those with special educational needs. There is a shared expectation that all students, regardless of their specific needs and disabilities, should be offered inclusive educational opportunities which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and ensure they can actively participate in the wider aspects of school life.
At The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy we believe that :
- All students should receive educational opportunities that enable them to reach their academic potential.
- All students should receive educational and enrichment opportunities that enable them to develop personal and social skills that will prepare them to make an active and positive contribution to the wider community in adult life.
- All students should be encouraged, valued and accepted whatever their individual abilities, needs and aspirations.
- Students make the greatest progress and achievement if they are active partners in the activities provided to bring about their success.
- Students with SEND should be identified early and the appropriate provision must be made for students with SEND in line with the statutory duties and best practice guidelines set out in the most recent Department for Education Code of Practice for SEND (DfE/DoH, 2015).
The revised new SEND Code of Practice came into force on April 1st 2015 and can be read here
