An Inclusive education

Special education needs

The Academy will provide a range of interventions to support children with particular learning needs. We will follow the statutory code of practice in identifying, assessing and supporting students with special educational needs.

 

Through individual education plans we will provide support which is tailored to cater for each student’s unique situation. Support may be given in class, in a small group or through withdrawal groups and will be delivered by a skilled team of teachers, teaching assistants and specialist behavioural support workers.

 

If we believe that your child needs to be assessed by an Educational Psychologist, we will work with parents to ensure that your child is supported and then provided with the learning, social or medical intervention they require.

For more information, please speak to our SENDCo: Leila Noble

english as an additional language

Supporting EAL is an Academy specialism; we will provide well matched extra support for students with additional language needs. Our emphasis on language acquisition via a combination of induction sessions and intensive EAL one-to- one/ small group teaching will ensure that children receive extra support until they reach the expected levels in English.

 

We will celebrate diversity, encourage first language development and enable children to gain qualifications in their first language.

 

Supporting EAL parents – We will produce communication in a simple format, emphasizing key information and provide translation, wherever possible. Parents are invited to family and adult ESL sessions as part of MCA’S community offer.

 

For more information on EAL support at MCPA, please speak to a member of the EAL team:

 

Alex Reed  - Head Teacher

Tracey Daley – Area Leader EAL (GMAT)

SEND Information

The Manchester Communication Primary Academy (MCPA) is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the children living in our local area. We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them and enables them to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

 

The Primary Academy as a learning community is committed to ensuring success for all. This means that in all work with young people we will aim to ensure that they:

  • Achieve their potential and enjoy their learning

  • Achieve economic well being

  • Stay healthy

  • Stay safe

  • Can make a positive contribution to the school, the community and the wider world.

 

We believe that all children and young people should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.

 

MCPA is committed to inclusion. Part of the academy’s strategic planning for improvement is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties.

 

This does not mean that we will treat all learners in the same way, but that we will respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs. The Academy will provide a range of interventions to support children with particular learning needs. We will follow the statutory code of practice in identifying, assessing and supporting students with special educational needs.

 

Through individual education plans we will provide support which is tailored to cater for each student’s unique situation. Support may be given in class, in a small group or through withdrawal groups and will be delivered by a skilled team of teachers, teaching assistants and specialist behavioural support workers.

 

If we believe that your child needs to be assessed by an Educational Psychologist, we will work with parents to ensure that your child is supported and then provided with the learning, social or medical intervention they require.
