The extensive experience and best practice of the existing four academies will be fully utilised to ensure every child at The Nexus Academy is part of a caring and supportive community.
The Nexus Academy believes that supporting students with special educational needs is the responsibility of every member of staff across the curriculum.
At The Nexus Academy, we will ensure that year groups are small to allow staff and students to get to know each other really well. All key stages will have a subject specialist teacher, as well as teaching assistants throughout the school day, ensuring our students always have access to adult support.
All students with SEN will have an Individual Education Plan (IEP), which will be agreed with the students and their parents, guardians or carers. IEPs contain clear targets and short-term goals to help students make progress and to enable teachers to tailor lessons to suit their needs.
