Amanda Mancini is our SENDCo. She has a clear understanding of our children’s needs and ensures they have access to the support required to enable them to achieve their full potential.
At Norwich Road Academy, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, health professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.
The following documents will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can support your children. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Mancini on either 01842 753279 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To find out more information on how we identify SEND, the provision available for children at Norwich Road Academy and how we review provision for children with SEND, please see our Provision Map, Identification Flow Chart and Graduated Approach Document. For more detailed information on how we support children with SEND, you can read our SEND Information Report below. This document is written in an FAQ format, a one-page summary is also available.
