Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
At King Edward VI Balaam Wood Academy, we believe that each person should be encouraged to achieve his or her potential in all aspects of school life. Supporting youngsters with Special Educational Needs is a clear expression of our mission statement – “Inspire, Succeed, Achieve”.
The guiding principles and objectives of the School’s SEN Policy are to ensure that the aims of the Mission Statement are secured for all pupils. We recognise that all pupils may have special educational needs at some time in their school career and that provision for these needs is on a continuum. We regard the pupils’ self-esteem to be of vital importance to their learning and intend that pupils should not feel stigmatised by their need. Teachers aim to ensure that all pupils have the chance to succeed, whatever their individual needs and potential barriers to their learning.
