Schools must now publish information on how it will meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by the school's policy, and the provision that the school is able to offer. Within Thrybergh Academy and Foljambe Campus we recognise that every child is unique and their needs will also be unique; therefore we endeavour to create bespoke packages of support that ensures every child, including those with SEN get the right type of support.
Right from the beginning of their learning journey, Thrybergh Academy promotes equality of opportunity for children in their care by having in place systems to identify and support children with SEN or disabilities. Through early identification and support we aim to ensure the best possible delivery and co-ordination of support for all our students and their families.
Thrybergh Academy and Foljambe Campus is committed to providing an environment that enables full curriculum access that values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their physical, sensory, cultural and social and emotional needs. We are committed to taking positive action in relation to the 2010 Equality Act (2010) with regards to disability and to developing a culture of inclusion, support and awareness within the school.
The school works to ensure that it meets its current statutory duties and does not unlawfully discriminate against pupils because of their: sex, race, disability, religion or belief, or sexual orientation. Furthermore, it is important to note that protection against discrimination is now extended to pupils who are pregnant, or have recently given birth, or who are undergoing gender reassignment. Achieving disability equality lies at the heart of our core objectives and values.
We aim to continue to build upon our culture of inclusion and diversity, where individuals feel free to disclose their disability and are supported to fully participate in school life. We recognise that promoting equality for all will improve access for everyone. Our aim, therefore, is to put equality as a central part of the way we work, by putting it at the centre of policy making for: practices, procedures and employment.
