Due to the change in government guidance Year 8 and Year 10 parents' evenings planned for December will be postponed until further notice.

Special educational needs

At Dixons Kings Academy, we believe it is important to bring out the best in all our students. The Inclusion Department works with all members of school staff to actively promote the development of students with special educational and additional needs. The department, aims to promote learning strategies and teaching approaches which allow these SEN and additional needs to be met. Support is given to teachers to enable them to provide appropriate challenges and opportunities for success for identified students. The Inclusion department works with all school staff to identify and assess students’ needs, plan for these needs and put into practice appropriate identified strategies. The school also works closely with outside agencies to ensure that students receive the appropriate support.

Available resources are used as efficiently and effectively as possible. A wide variety of support is put in place depending on the needs of the child. This can range from individual and small group withdrawal sessions to support in class.

Students can have special educational or additional needs throughout their schooling career or at specific points and the Inclusion department works with all staff to support these students. All Year 7 students take a reading test on entry into the school and students identified as needing additional literacy support participate in 'Active Literacy' and/or 'Lexia'.

The transition process to a new school can be a daunting experience for any parent and we try to make this process as smooth as possible by visiting students in their Primary School, meeting key staff and a range of orientation activities at Dixons Kings Academy.

If you have concerns about the support that will be available for your child once they move to Dixons Kings Academy, Nicola Cunningham (Head of SEND) and Andrea Dyxkhoorn (SENDCo) are always willing to talk through these worries with you.
