At Ark Acton we strive to be a truly inclusive school, meaning all students will have equitable access to services, experiences, curriculum, teachers and support. Our Inclusion Department works closely with parents, teachers and the students themselves to help overcome any barriers to learning that students may face on their journey towards adult life.
Whilst our curriculum has high aspirations for all pupils, teachers know to adapt resources and outcomes for the ability of individual students. As such, pupils with additional needs will receive the same high-quality teaching input from their class teacher, whilst perhaps working on different targets to their peers – for example the end result of a task may take a different form. Our school SENCO works closely with all teachers to identify needs early and assess which interventions or specialist support is required. We monitor progress following the ‘Assess, Plan, Do, Review’ model to ensure support is appropriately pitched, targeted and personalised.
