Ansford Academy is committed to raising the aspirations of and expectations for all students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We are committed to providing lifelong learning for all our students and providing high quality education and an inclusive curriculum that supports students with SEND across all needs.

We believe in building strong relationships with students and their families and supporting SEND students to achieve their full potential. At Ansford Academy, we plan for students’ needs by ensuring that they have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, alongside support and intervention from the SEND and Pastoral Team.

The SEND Team is led by our Associate Headteacher and SENDCo Mrs Becca Wood, who is supported by Ms Su Perkins (Part time Advisory SENDCo) and Mrs Jane Rossiter, a SEND Teacher and Intervention Specialist.

There is also a team of experienced teaching assistants who support students in the classroom and deliver small group and 1-1 interventions, such as nurture groups, social skills and literacy.

Our SEND Information Report is available here.
