Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Ormiston Denes will ensure that the necessary provision is made for any student who has special educational needs or disabilities and those needs are made known to all who are likely to teach them.

The academy will provide SEND students with full access to the curriculum and activities, within the available resources.
