Lancot Challenger Academy Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)
Information Report 2020/21
Lancot Challenger Academy is a highly participative, aspirational and caring community where pupils can give and receive respect and enjoy a sense of wellbeing, belonging, worth and achievement.
Lancot Challenger Academy is an inclusive school and has a specialist SEMH department supporting children to reach their full potential. Specialist teaching across the school ensures that individual needs are identified early and children receive the support and differentiation they need.
We comply with the Government’s Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice. The Code of Practice outlines the key ways pupils should be supported in class, along with expected equality duties shown in the School’s Disability Equality Policy and our access arrangements in the school’s Accessibility Plan.
At Lancot Challenger Academy all pupils, regardless of their particular needs, are offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community. The school looks carefully at each individual child’s needs when deciding how best to support them. All interventions and approaches included in this document have been shown to have a positive impact on pupils’ learning.
