Our SEN Statement 

At The Newark Hill Academy we want to make sure that every child gets the best support we can offer in order to help them to enjoy their learning, feel confident and happy amongst their friends and make the best possible progress.

Every child has individual needs that will affect their learning. Sometimes children need special support to give them an extra boost or to help them catch up with other children of the same age. They may need this support for a short time or a longer period, but during this time they will be part of our Special Educational Needs (SEN) Register and we will keep a close eye on their progress, look carefully at what special support they need and keep in regular contact with their parents. Children are regularly asked their views and opinions of the learning and support they receive.

Reasonable adjustments will be made for all children with special educational needs to access extra curricular activities and off site visits.
