Special educational needs

Queen Elizabeth’s Academy aims to support students with special educational needs by seeking to remove barriers to learning and participation, ensuring all students have access to an appropriate education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their personal potential. 

The academy supports students in four main areas: communication and interaction, cognition and learning, behaviour, emotional and social development and sensory and/or physical. It works collaboratively with outside agencies ensuring specialist advice and provision supports effective teaching and learning.

Our team of highly trained teaching assistants and behaviour mentors work alongside the needs of students, ensuring the curriculum and learning environments can be accessed by all.
