Grestone Academy is a fully inclusive mainstream primary school whose aim is to meet the learning and developmental needs of all children, including our SEND learners. We make every effort to make sure our school community live in harmony and take PRIDE in helping our children to be the best that they can be through:
Perseverance in all we do, Respect for others and our environment,
Developing Independence as we grow. Celebrating Diversity together, Achieving Excellence!
We are determined to make sure that our SEND children feel fully included in school life, regardless of their specific needs, so that they make the best possible progress in school. Our curriculum model ensures that learning is accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs. Within the wider curriculum, rationale and planning documentation includes focused direction on how lessons can be personalised to meet differing needs. Core lessons are made accessible to all through teacher's understanding of individual need and skillful delivery to ensure children's learning needs are met, in line with our duties under the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.
