Special Educational Needs and disabilities – SEND

We believe that inclusion lies at the heart of Leigh Academy Blackheath (LAB), and the SEND team works in collaboration with staff, students, families, and external agencies to ensure that the needs of all students are met at LAB.

We strive to identify and to reduce or remove, where possible, any barriers students may have to learning. We support all students to reach their full potential, securing both strong personal and academic outcomes. This is done primarily through quality first teaching, targeted interventions and therapies, as well as close collaboration and engagement with all stakeholders and outside agencies. 

The 1:1 devices that our students receive as part of their academy kit are key tools in supporting access to our broad and balanced curriculum, and they encourage and support all students as they develop into independent learners.

If you have any questions regarding SEND at Leigh Academy Blackheath, please contact Mrs Donnelly, our SENCO, at send@leighacademyblackheath.org.uk
