Special Educational Needs and Difficulties (SEND)


Please watch the video below for our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Report:



At Barwell C E Academy, we are committed to equal opportunities for all of our pupils. We strive to remove barriers to learning to ensure that all children can reach their full potential, whatever their special educational need (sen) or disability. The majority of pupils with SEND in our school are provided for within the class by slight adjustments to work, resources or teaching methods. Whilst we strive to be as inclusive as possible, we recognise that sometimes, to achieve their potential, children need very different strategies, teaching styles or learning provision. The Headteacher, sendco, teachers and support staff work with parents and outside agencies to ensure the best approaches possible are used in order to support children with SEND.


To find out more in detail about how we support pupils at Barwell C E Academy, please read the school SEND information report and SEND policy. To find out more about the Leicestershire County Council SEN offer, please click here.


If you are concerned about your child, please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher in the first instance or Jodie Robinson (our Family Link Worker), who will happily discuss your child’s progress and ways in which you can help your child at home.


If you have specific questions or need further advice after reading the policy and information report, please do not hesitate to contact the school Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCo), Jenny Ruane, who can be contacted via the school office on Wednesdays.
