11.How are adaptations made to the curriculum and the learning environment of children with SEND including access?


All pupils at Thurcroft Junior Academy have a right to participate in a broad, balanced and relevant mainstream curriculum appropriate to their needs.  Strategies include; setting within the curriculum, enhanced staffing, specialist provision and equipment within the Academy including the commissioned services of Educational Psychologist, Education Welfare Officer and other specialist bodies as required e.g The Virtual School (looked after children). SATs access arrangements are reviewed and implemented as required.


The Local Governing Body remains committed to improving provision for pupils and adults who find access to and movement around the site difficult. The SENDCO works closely with appropriate agencies to service the best interests of the pupils, for example, the Hearing Impaired Service and the Visually Impaired Service which assist by providing specialist equipment and training for our pupils as and when required. They monitor the progress of pupils with impairments through the school.
