Introduction

We aim to ensure that Catcote Academy is a friendly and secure place, with a stimulating and rewarding environment. We want every student to make as much progress as possible and aim to offer enriching experiences alongside a broad, balanced and personalised curriculum, using a range of strategies and approaches appropriate to individual needs and learning styles. The Academy adopts a proactive approach to disability equality, incorporating it into all decisions and activities.

Policies are in place to ensure the wellbeing of the whole school community, and that the aims set out above are supported.

The Academy subscribes to the vision for high aspirations and expectations set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014, and work to realise it for all of our students. The Code of Practice states that:

All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:

  • Achieve their best;
  • Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives; and
  • Make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.
