Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

All staff at Sedgefield Community College recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need and/or disability.

Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them. All staff working within Sedgefield Community College, will strive to make reasonable adjustments to ensure your child can access all aspects of Academy life. 

To ensure there is an overarching inclusive strategy from reception to year 11, we have appointed a Director of SEND & Inclusion, who works closely with the staff to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for children with additional needs or barriers to their learning.
