SEN & Disabilities
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) section of our website.
We hope you will find useful information here regarding how we support our students with SEND at Harris Academy St John’s Wood. You will see our vision for pupils with SEND, which sets out what we aim to achieve for students with SEND.
In the ‘Documents’ section, you will find our provision maps for pupils at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5, which detail how we support our students with different needs at varying levels. These maps set out what students can expect to benefit from in lessons and in the wider academy. You can also find the combined SEND Policy and Parent Information Report, and the Accessibility Plan, which give a more detailed assessment of SEND practice at Harris Academy St John’s Wood.
There is also a ‘Parent Frequently Asked Questions’ document which can be referred to in order to answer questions you may have regarding provision here at Harris Academy St John’s Wood. If this document does not answer your questions, please feel free to contact Lizzie Stockdale (Assistant Principal for Inclusion) at email@example.com, or by calling the school reception.

Harris Academy St John’s Wood Vision for pupils with SEND
Harris Academy St John's Wood is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education for all children. We believe that all children, whether or not they have been identified as having Special Educational Needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. This curriculum should be accessible to them, and they will be fully included in all aspects of academy life. We recognise that pupils learn at different rates and that there are many factors affecting achievement, including ability, emotional state, age and maturity. We believe that many pupils, at some time in their academy career, may experience difficulties which affect their learning, and we recognise that these may be long or short term. At the academy we aim to identify these needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning contexts which enable every child to achieve to his or her full potential.
For any questions relating to our SEND provision, please check the link to our Combined SEND Policy and Parent Information Report which can be found below.
