Etonbury Academy

Special Educational Needs & Disability

Develop, Enrich & Nuture

At Etonbury, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information through regular inclusion bulletins and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress, despite high quality teaching, and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning at three regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, Health Professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.
 
The following documents will give you more information in relation to support for SEND at Etonbury and some useful websites and resources for parents and carers. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact us:
