Meeting the needs of Students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The Bewbush Academy is part of The Kemnal Academy Trust schools in the Crawley Locality Group. As a locality group we are committed to being inclusive schools and adopt a similar approach to meeting the needs of all students including those with special educational needs. We work to ensure that the necessary provision is made for any student who has special educational needs and that those needs are made known to all who are likely to teach them. We endeavour to ensure that all teachers are able to identify and provide for those students who have special educational needs, to allow them to join in with the activities of the schools, together with students who do not have special educational needs, so far as is reasonably practical and the efficient education of the students with whom they are educated is not affected.
