Durand Academy is an inclusive school and welcomes all children from the local community. The Governors are committed to ensuring that the admissions to the Academy reflect the full range of abilities and the Academy strives to make Durand a safe and inclusive environment for all of our pupils.
It is a responsibility on all teachers to respond to pupils’ diverse learning needs and to make provision within their planning and delivery to meet these needs. The Special Educational Needs team have a responsibility to assist this planning and delivery so that every pupil‘s needs are met.
Pupils may have special educational needs either throughout, or at any time during their school career. Our inclusion and special educational needs policy ensures that the curriculum planning and assessment for pupils with special educational needs takes account of the type and extent of the difficulty experienced by the pupil.
