Widnes Academy is a mainstream school which strives to provide the best learning opportunities for all pupils.
Our core values promote an inclusive school community. We recognise that all pupils are individuals who have different learning needs and we work hard to ensure all pupils are given the right balance of support and challenge.
Our SENCO and Senior Leadership Team work closely together to coordinate the SEND provision liaising with parents, young people with SEND, school staff, and specialist support from the local authority and any other agencies where appropriate.
We follow the guidelines set out in the Code of Practice and work closely with the local authority in identifying and assessing students with SEND. Within this we also include young people with SEND who are looked after.
For further information, please refer to our School’s SEND Policy located under the Policy Section.
