At Ormiston SWB Academy, students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are supported to be respectful, responsible learners and will always experience a first-class education. 

We believe in early identification to ensure we can support individual student needs and provide the best learning environment to strengthen student progress. We provide a fully inclusive curriculum and programme of enrichment activities, ensuring that student success and achievement can be celebrated. 

Within the SEND Department the key priorities for development for the academic year 2021-2022 are: 

  • Ensure quality first teaching across all curriculum areas 
  • Deliver an ambitious curriculum with equality of opportunities 
  • Promote inclusive practice with high expectations
