Special Educational Needs

At St Uny C of E Academy all children are valued, respected and welcomed to our school whatever their additional educational need. We will support their learning and ensure they are fully included in all school activities, making full use of externally provided facilities where appropriate. 

Special Educational Needs

Children with additional needs are identified through a combination of observations of the children as individuals within their classes by our experienced staff, tracking the outcomes of assessments and through discussions with parents.  At St Uny C of E Academy we are very lucky to have an experienced SENDco, Mrs Brand. She works with the class teachers and teaching assistants to create programmes of support that meet the needs of the child. If you wish to discuss your child's learning programme, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher in the first instance and then should you require further information please contact Mrs Brand.

We work with a range of external agencies to provide the best support for all our children. There are too many to list, but they include:

  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Dyslexia Support Service
  • Hearing Support Service
  • Social Communication Difficulties Team
  • Medical Professionals
As a school we value art in supporting children's social, emotional and mental health. There is a weekly art nurture group which children are invited to take part in; here they get the opportunity to take part in mindful drawing  and process art activities . In addition to this, whole school process art activities take place termly e.g. a Christmas doodle art afternoon, collage bunting. It is always interesting to observe children during these times as it enables us to see the children working without inhibitions and expectations, it helps us identify their individual needs so we can support them during other times. 

Should you wish to contact Mrs Brand about any area of SEND provision our school, please contact the school office.
