Charnwood Primary Academy’s core moral purpose is encapsulated in the vision statement for the academy: Inspire…Nurture… Achieve.

Charnwood Primary Academy regards pupils as having special educational needs if they have a signifcantly greater difficulty learning than the majority of learners at the same age or if they have a disability which either prevents or hinders them from making use of the educational facilities provided for learners of the same age.

These children will need help that is ‘additional to or different from’ help that is given to other learnings of the same age.  At Charnwood Primary Academy , we operate an equal opportunitiues policy for all learning, including those with special needs.

The categories of special educational needs as set out in the SEN Code of Practice (2014) are:

  • communication and interaction
  • cognition and learning
  • social, emotional and mental health difficulties
  • sensory and/or physical needs.
