The Inclusion Team would like to invite Parents/Carers to the monthly Conversation Café (taking place the first Monday of every month). Members of the Inclusion Team will be on hand to offer advice, give recommendations and answer any questions that you may have regarding the Special Educational Needs or wellbeing of your child.
We believe all children deserve the very best possible start and we aim to enrich the lives of all our pupils.
All children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are welcome at Marine Academy Primary. Full support will be provided to each child who has SEND requirements with well thought out strategies to overcome any barriers to learning. Marine Academy Primary is a fully inclusive school providing an outstanding and caring education so all pupils can achieve their potential. The Academy has won a range of Inclusion and SEN Awards, including the Education Business Award for Inclusive Education 2015, highly accredited for Education Business Award for Inclusive Education 2016, GHP Social Care Award for Special Educational Needs Coordinator South West 2017, GHP Social Care Award for Excellence in Academic Special Educational Needs Management South West England in 2018 and 2019 and winner of the SEN Inclusion Award at the Education Business Awards 2019. We are also delighted to have been shortlisted for the nasen Primary Provision award this year!
Parents/Carers are fully involved and the progress of children with SEND is monitored towards meeting specifically identified goals and targets.
The Academy uses specialist strategies, which include a strong commitment towards training and developing all teachers and Teaching Assistants in their understanding of SEN to ensure that everyone is a ‘teacher of SEN’.
Excellent care, guidance and support contributes significantly to pupils’ personal development to make them all feel safe and secure and make the best possible academic and personal progress.
