SEND Mission Statement
At Biggleswade Academy, our mission is to enable all children and young people with SEND to achieve the best possible educational and wider outcomes and to make a successful transition into adulthood. This will be achieved through high quality teaching and provision that is differentiated and personalized and will meet the needs of the individual. From early identification pupils with SEND will receive high quality teaching, support strategies and interventions tailored to their individual needs which will enable them to achieve their full potential.
We recognise that every teacher is responsible and accountable for all pupils in their class wherever or with whomever the pupils are working and fully agree that:
‘High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of children and young people. Some…need educational provision that is additional or different from this…Special educational provision is underpinned by high quality teaching and is compromised by anything less.’
We also recognise there may be occasions where, having made all possible reasonable adjustments, it is evident that the needs of a particular child simply cannot be met within our inclusive environment. In such a situation, the pupils’ needs will always come first and we will work closely with our partners to proactively source the very best educational provision for the needs of the individual concerned.
