Mrs C. McKnight

The Inclusion Department is led by Mrs C. McKnight and has two key roles; supporting students with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and supporting Looked After Children/Previously Looked After Children.


Students identified with SEND are able to access the general curriculum within the Academy, achieved by using a range of strategies designed to meet the needs of individual students. This includes a range of 1:1 and small group interventions, including both direct teaching and the use of computer software. The Inclusion department also provides some in-class support, working with teachers across a number of subjects. Students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs are also able to access support from The Hub. Students with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) needs are also able to access support from The Link. Here students may receive targeted 1:1 interventions or participate in small group work. The Academy SENCo is Mrs C. McKnight.
