SEND Support at the Fen Rivers Academy


Each learner at The Fen Rivers Academy is supported according to their individual needs. 


As part of the induction process for each learner, staff from the Academy work closely with the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) from their referring school to assess the level of support they have been receiving and to identify appropriate support strategies. Continued support from referring schools is expected. 


Special educational needs, as according to the 2014 Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice, are met through: 

  • Quality-first teaching, 
  • Specific, targeted interventions to address both academic barriers to learning and social and emotional issues. These interventions are carried out several times a week and may be daily for learners requiring intensive support. 



Teaching assistants are used to support quality-first teaching as well as deliver some of the interventions. 


At the Fen Rivers Academy EHCPs are used to determine the provision needed to meet each learner's needs. Therapeutic provision is mapped out and learner's timetables are driven by their needs.
