At Bradford Academy we aim to provide an inclusive and engaging learning
experience for all regardless of circumstance. To do this we ensure that
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are identified at the earliest
possible stage and that appropriate support is in place so that all learners
can meet their full potential. This ethos can be seen across all areas of the
school day, both during formal learning and informal events.
Our curriculum is fluid and modifiable so that each individual child can
follow their own path of learning at their own pace. Children receive whole
class teaching, small group work and one to one support as necessary. Their
progress is monitored by both the class teacher, support assistants and the
Senior Vice-Principal for inclusion to identify next steps and ensure that
every child is receiving a quality education.
In order to do this we have built positive relationships with parents
and carers which alongside the views of learners ensure that all needs are met
effectively. We commission several specialists to support children including a
speech and language therapist, educational psychologist and a counsellor.
At Bradford Academy we believe that having children from such a diverse
range of backgrounds with differing needs is both a challenge and a benefit.
The experience this brings for all our learners and staff help to create a
positive and rich environment that benefits the wider community. Learners are
well supported academically, socially and emotionally. This gives our learners
the confidence to transition through the stages of their learning journey.
