At Avon Valley Academy we aspire to create a truly inclusive learning environment which enables all our
students to make progress and become happy, confident young adults.
When a student has a special educational need, we ensure that all teachers are aware of these needs and strategies. Avon Valley Academy is a wheelchair friendly site on the ground floor and has handrails to support people with mobility difficulties.
OFSTED reported that ‘ Leaders systematically identify strategies to support pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Many staff use these strategies well. Pupils with SEND say this helps them to learn’
If a student has a specific educational need, we also offer a range of different interventions which help us target their individual needs. Students are selected for these interventions based on their needs, data collected from literacy screeners and from teacher feedback.
How The Students Access This Support
This intervention is used to support students with more developed needs impacting on their social, emotional, mental health. This 1:1 support creates an Action Plan and Thrive assessment with strategies which can be used to promote wellbeing at home and school.
