Mounts Bay Academy is a caring school where we are all working towards gaining access to a world of learning opportunities.
As the Principal writes in his introduction; “We are a learning community that aspires to success for all without exception, convinced that everyone has the ability to learn at the highest level, we just need to present them learning experiences that are as engaging as they are adventurous. We believe that all young people are “Grade A” students; it is our job to nurture the very best in each person by identifying their strengths and talents and removing any barriers to learning.”
We therefore recognise that, whilst all students have individual needs, some students may have additional needs that require support or interventions, in order for them to reach their full potential. In order for the students to thrive, it is important to identify these extra needs early. We will work together with parents, and if needed any outside agencies, to meet an individual’s needs. This enables us to target support and interventions effectively so we can all work together to focus on specific learning targets.
SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disabilities – is the broad term used to describe students who might need additional, individualised support.
Mounts Bay is a fully inclusive school and believes that every child has access firstly to high quality class teaching, together with small group work, or individual support, as part of an individualised teaching programme and planned interventions.
On this page we will supply staff, Students, Parents and Carers with information to show how we will support students with SEND.
