Here at Ormiston Forge Academy, we pride ourselves on knowing and understanding the individual special educational needs and disabilities of our young people, striving to offer the right support, in the right place, at the right time.
As an Academy we seek to ensure that our curriculum is accessible, equitable, adaptive, engaging and capable of leading all students to make progress. Regardless of ability, our mission is to ensure all students leave school well-rounded, confident citizens who have the skill to contribute to their communities.
Students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), from year 7 through to year 13, will find support available from teachers and learning support assistants. Support is fully inclusive and takes place within classrooms, in line with and to exemplify the Quality First Teaching staff provide. Our Access Zone provides bespoke interventions for students who require additional support for; Cognition & Learning, Social, Emotion & Mental Health (SEMH) needs, Communication & Interaction and Physical & Sensory needs. In addition the Access Zone is also available to our SEND students during social times.
In meeting these needs the Academy seeks to ensure that the curriculum is accessible, relevant, engaging, enjoyable, progressive and capable of leading to achievement.
