Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Monks Coppenhall Academy is an inclusive school. Across all year groups, there is a wide range of strategies and resources that the staff can use to include children who have special needs or disabilities. These include provision for children with emotional, social and behavioural needs as well as academic. Nurturing is embedded throughout the school curriculum and where required, some pupils with high levels of needs may follow a more tailored and personalised curriculum based on their own individual needs.

Miss Fisher and Miss Hetherington the Academy's SENCOs are available to talk to you if you feel your child has any additional needs. They will work with you, the class teacher and your child to ensure that their needs are met, so that each child is able to achieve their potential and be the best that they can be. Sometimes, where it is felt to be of benefit, we will approach outside agencies for further advice and support. Our aim is to work co-operatively to benefit each child.

Mrs G. Edwards is the SENCO Director.
