The school SEND offer is the inclusive, accessible provision which supports children who may have a special educational need and/or disability at any point during their time with us to thrive.

As a fully inclusive school, Brackensdale Spencer Academy is committed to identifying and providing for the needs of all children. Every teacher is a teacher of every child or young person including those with SEND; and all staff are trained in and adhere to our model of good practice.

Children are recognised as individuals, with abilities and development needs which will vary across the curriculum. Through implementing our Graduated Response, Class teachers and support staff are able to identify individual development requirements, and to provide lessons, interventions and activities which ensure good progress for pupils at all levels of ability.

Where children’s needs require support beyond the level that can be appropriately be provided by the class teacher, the school plays a co-ordinating role which may include working with the local authority and other professionals to source additional specialist support.

As part of changes implemented by the Department for Education in 2014, all local authorities must publish information about how they support SEND pupils. This is called the ‘Local Offer.’
