Students with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make steady progress at Grangefield Academy. Students are taught along with their peers in mainstream lessons. Staff are committed to understanding the nature of each individual’s needs and how these can best be met in and beyond the classroom. Making progress is an essential element of every lesson; therefore quality assurance checks are in place to ensure this happens.
A team of dedicated teaching assistants work alongside teaching staff to enhance the learning experience of our students. They support across the curriculum, developing teaching and learning strategies and styles to raise achievement of some of our most vulnerable students. Group work and individual support are key elements in achieving success.
