Special Educational Needs Department (SEND)
The Albany School believes that all children should have an equal opportunity to have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and to be included in all activities at school that are open to pupils of their age group.
The Albany aims to secure this equal opportunity for every child by promoting and supporting the development of an inclusive education within secondary school and by ensuring that ultimately every child is able to access mainstream education and receive appropriate support in respect of any special educational needs they may have.
In educational terms 'Inclusion' is about;
- providing an appropriate education for everybody so they can reach their full potential
- meeting the needs of children in their local school so that they are valued and respected as equal members of their learning community
- partnership and close liaison between schools and parents/carers to ensure that children receive an education that is appropriate to their needs
We aim to encourage and assist each child to maximise their potential in a caring, stimulating and happy environment.
