Tuxford Primary Academy aims to support children with special educational needs and disability (SEND) by seeking to remove barriers to learning and participation, ensuring all children have access to an appropriate education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their personal potential.

The academy supports pupils in four main areas:

  • Cognition and learning needs
  • Communication and interaction needs
  • Sensory, medical and/or physical needs
  • Social, emotional and mental health needs

We work collaboratively with outside agencies ensuring specialist advice and provision supports effective teaching and learning.

What is the Local Offer?

In September 2014 the government made a lot of changes to the way that children and young people aged 0 to 25, with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are supported. This included making Local Authorities produce a ‘ SEND Local Offer’.

The SEND Local Offer aims to bring together helpful and useful information for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families. It is a comprehensive guide to services and support all in one place. Please watch the video at the bottom of this page to find out more.
