THE BRIDGE ACADEMY'S LOCAL OFFER
Welcome to The Bridge Academy’s SEND Local Offer.
Within The Bridge Academy's Local Offer you will find information in regards to the support we provide for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
The Bridge Academy fully endorses the SEND Code of Practice (Jan 2015) core principles.
All children and young people are entitled 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.
- Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 0 to 25 years 2014
The Bridge Academy is fully committed to the inclusion of students with SEND providing that the Academy is compatible for the child’s age, ability and aptitude and that their attendance is not incompatible with the efficient education of other students in the Academy and is an efficient use of the Local Authority’s resources.
