The Compass Primary Academy Offer
What does Compass Primary Academy offer children with special educational needs or disabilities?
Our SEN aims
At Compass Primary Academy, we want to make sure that every pupil gets the best support we can offer in order to help them to enjoy their learning, feel confident and happy amongst their friends and make the best possible progress.
Every pupil has individual needs that will affect their learning. Sometimes pupils need special support to give them an extra boost or to help them catch up with other pupils of the same age. They may need this support for a short time or a longer period, but during this time they will be part of our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Register. Whilst on the register, we will keep a close eye on a pupil's progress, look carefully at what special support they need and keep in close touch with their parents/carers.
