SEND Provision

Amanda Mancini is the SENDCo  and she has a clear understanding of our children’s needs and ensure 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 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 a.mancini@nor.eastern-mat.co.uk

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.
