At Hill View Primary Academy, it is our intent to demonstrate our commitment to the equal inclusion of all pupils in our school. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all our pupils. We will provide a secure and accessible environment in which all our children can flourish and feel valued.
Our aim is to offer an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible outcomes and progress for all of our children, whatever their needs or abilities, in turn, raising achievement and removing barriers to learning.
Our SEND Coordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs L Knapper. Our Assistant SENDCo is Mr L Ward. If you would like to get in touch with them, please contact the school office, who will be happy to organise a meeting or phone call. Please be aware that, due to current restrictions, face-to-face meetings are being kept to a minimum.
Hill View Primary Academy has a well-established system for children who have special educational needs or disabilities, but we are always looking for ways to improve integration and accessibility. The information below, and in our SEND policy, which can be found on the policies page, provide more information on our ways of supporting SEND children. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
