In our Academy we have high expectations of all our children and we aim to offer excellence and choice to all children, whatever their ability or needs.  We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation, because we want all our children to feel that they are a valued part of our academy community. 

From September 2014 the Government has made significant changes to the systems designed to support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The Children and Families Bill 2013 has extended the SEND system from birth to 25, giving young people and their parents/carers greater control and choice in decisions and ensuring their needs are properly met. 

To find out more about these changes and the SEND provision available at Kedington Primary Academy, please see the Kedington SEND Policy and the Kedington Primary Academy Local Offer.

Here are some links to useful websites for parents, where you can seek further information and advice on supporting children with additional needs at home;

From Monday 21st January 2019 to Wednesday 23rd January 2019 Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will be carrying out a re-visit of our local area following the previous inspection of SEND services that took place between 12th December 2016 and 16th December 2016.

During the re-visit Ofsted and CQC inspectors will be keen to speak to as many children and young people and their parents and carers as possible.

The inspectors will also gather the contributions of parents and families through an online survey and a face-to-face open meeting.

For further information about the visit and how to contribute your views please see the attached letter.
