SEN & Inclusion
Tidemill Academy is committed to meeting the needs of every pupil. We teach a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum that helps every child reach his or her potential in a healthy, happy and safe environment. Tidemill gained the Inclusion Quality Mark Award as a Centre of Excellence in 2017 where the school’s inclusion practices were described as, ‘outstanding and highly effective’.
Teachers at Tidemill are responsible for the progress and development of all pupils in their class. This includes the deployment of teaching assistants and specialist staff who support all pupils. We provide high quality support through quality first teaching – the effective inclusion of all pupils with everyday differentiated teaching that aims to meet the needs of individual pupils. This is the first step in responding to pupils that may have special educational needs (SEN). Additional interventions are then used to support children who have specific needs.
We believe in fostering and maintaining positive partnerships with parents and carers as we recognise that they play a key role in enabling children with SEND to reach their full potential. All parents at Tidemill are treated as partners and are given support to play an active role in their child’s development and education.
