Students with special educational needs from Years 7 to 11 will find support available to them from our integrated services team. Intensive support is coordinated within our specialist integrated support area. A key strand of this work is the development of literacy and numeracy skills, but students may also be supported in lessons in a range of subjects to give them full access to the curriculum and to develop their skills effectively.

The academy also meets the needs of students with physical difficulties, social interaction and communication difficulties and behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.

In meeting these needs, the academy seeks to ensure that the curriculum is accessible but challenging, engaging, enjoyable, progressive and leads to achievement for all.

NELC Parental Engagement with Delivering Better Value (DBV) in SEND:

North East Lincolnshire have been given a fantastic opportunity to work in conjunction with the Department for Education on a project called ‘Delivering Better Value in SEND’.

Part of the project is to better understand why so many requests for statutory assessment (EHCPs) are being made, and why so many children are requiring places in special schools.

One of the key themes from what we have found out so far, is about how confident parents and carers feel in the support their child receives in a mainstream school.

To help us understand this better, we would appreciate your feedback.

It takes about three minutes to complete.
