Where a student with SEND is not making appropriate progress and The Academy feel that they need advice and support from external professionals, we will discuss such a need with parents. If it is felt appropriate, we will then refer a student to an external agency and/or professionals for diagnosis, support or advice. Subsequent to such a referral, we will work with the external agency to support such students, using their support and advice. This will be reflected in an individual SEN Support plan.
The school is currently working with the following teams/agencies:
•SEND and Inclusion service (including the Sensory Support team)
•SEND Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS)
•Virtual School for looked after children
•Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)
•Educational Psychology Service
•Speech and Language Therapist
