Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)

Support for students with additional needs (SEND) is at the heart of our school

SEND Information

As a Church of England Academy, we recognise that every child is unique and special and will need to be recognised and known as an individual. Currently we work with students with a wide range of additional needs including, Dyslexia, physical difficulties, speech language and communication difficulties, Autistic Spectrum conditions, more general learning difficulties, those with rare syndromes, hearing and visual impairment and attention deficit disorders.

We have a fully accessible building that is DDA compliant. 

The Hub provides a focus for additional support including break time and lunchtime pastoral and homework support.

How we support students through the curriculum  

We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students. This may include short-term intervention or other interventions developed on an individual needs basis.

We support students with identified needs in lessons or occasionally in smaller group settings. Support is geared to individual needs and the aim in both settings is to develop successful independent learners and happy students.

Consulting with Parents and Young People  

All students at Manor have formal consultation points during the year including parent’s evenings. Students with SEND have additional reviews for their Educational and Health Care Plans or My Support Plans or Pupil Passports. Parents and students are fully involved at each point of the decision making process.

Accessing other support

York Parent Partnership Service is part of the LA’s special educational needs (SEN) services. They provide impartial support, advice and information for parents and carers of children with special educational needs.  The service is free and can be provided over the telephone, home visits or through support at school meetings.
