Penwortham Priory Academy is an inclusive school where we aim to educate all pupils including those with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). We recognise individual strengths, needs, circumstances, difficulties and disabilities. Pupils with SEND have an equal opportunity to achievement and participation across a broad balanced curriculum, including the National Curriculum..

A range of approaches to develop independent learning are used to ensure a measure of challenge and support for SEND pupils and these can include small group working, 1:1 or additional support in lessons.

It is the responsibility of all staff to ensure that the needs of pupils with SEND are met. Parental involvement will be valued as we believe that and strong home / school partnership is central to the successful education of all SEND pupils.
