|“The SEND provision at Viewley Hill Academy is a strength of the school; it underpins everything they do and ensures that every child is advocated for by all staff…..Viewley Hill Academy is a truly inclusive environment.” – SEND review, 2018.|
At Viewley Hill Academy, we value each child as an individual and celebrate all achievement. We aim to ensure that all children are able to reach their potential and recognise that some children may need additional support and provision in order to do so. This is done using the ‘Assess, Plan, Do, Review Model as outlined below (also known as the ‘Graduated Response’) which underpins the provision provided for all children with SEND.
