All pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential.

We believe in positive intervention –removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement, and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils, including those with a special educational need and/or disability.

Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them. All staff at Atkinson Road Primary Academy will strive to make reasonable adjustments to ensure your child can access all aspects of academy life.

We employ a team of professionals, including an Educational Psychologist, a Speech Therapist and an Occupational Therapist. We also employ children's counselors when needed.

If you have any questions or queries about Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, please contact our SENDCo, Mrs Petra Brown.
