Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

‘Every Child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding’  

Robert John Meehan.


At Horbury Bridge Academy, we strive to provide an education for every child so that they can become successful individuals regardless of their level of need.

We are committed to an inclusive ethos where all pupils are recognised, respected and valued.

We provide a broad curriculum that is appropriate to the needs and abilities of all our children, where quality first teaching is at the heart of learning.

Children are taught at a level and pace that is appropriate to their abilities. This may mean that additional support is given, whether it be through intervention programmes, working with outside agencies and having regular conversations with families of children with SEND so that they can access the best teaching and pathway to learning that we can give them.


Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator is Mrs Cath Thompson. If you have any enquiries about SEND, she can be contacted by email: sendco@horburybridgeacademy.co.uk

At Horbury Bridge Academy inclusion means that every child will:

  • feel safe, confident and happy in school.
  • enjoy their learning and progress and achieve their full potential.
  • be resilient and believe in what they can do within a stimulating environment.
  • know that they are valued members of our school community.
