Our curriculum at Newmarket Academy takes in to account the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.
The Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) takes responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the SEND policy and co-ordination of special needs provision, working closely with staff, parents/carers and other agencies. The SENCO also provides professional guidance to colleagues to ensure students with SEND have full access to the curriculum.
The Trust’s CEO and the Academy’s Principal have responsibility for the overall management of provision for all students.
The Headteacher works closely with the SENCO. The philosophy of SEND and inclusion being linked enables a holistic understanding of students’ needs and appropriate support strategies to be put in place.
The SEND Governor regularly meets with the SENCO, ensuring that policies and procedures meet statutory requirements.
The duties of the Governing Body are set out in the SEN Code of Practice 2014.
