SEND Local Offer

Beacon Academy ensures all students have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, in order to realise their full potential. We support all students to make outstanding academic and personal progress and grow to be equipped for their future lives. Provision may change and develop over time and is responsive to the needs of the particular student or groups of student within the Academy. Beacon Academy recognises that for some students, adaptation, differentiation and personalisation will be needed, along with rigorous monitoring and very regular review to ensure that students are making excellent progress. Some students may need specifically targeted, specialist and intensive interventions in order to support them to realise their potential. We want the same for all our students, excellence, but recognise that a range of different provision and in class support will be needed for some students in order for this to be achieved. Our committed team of learning mentors work closely with both teaching and pastoral support to ensure a joined up approach to supporting student’s academic and pastoral needs.

The Crowborough and District Cluster Group work together to support pupils with special educational needs. For more information please see our SEND Information Report which has been created with parents and students, and includes information that is considered most useful and explains how we support pupils with Special Educational Needs and disabilities. You may also find The Crowborough Local Offer website useful.
