The Trust's SEND Vision
“Believe, Achieve, Succeed”.
Our mission statement “Believe, Achieve, Succeed” reflects our understanding and beliefs.
The Trust is committed to improving outcomes for all pupils through providing an appropriate and high quality inclusive education to all members of the Academy community.
The Trust places inclusion at the heart of all its provision and seeks to develop a range of inclusive services to support learners with specific needs to ensure they are given the opportunity to fulfil their potential now and in the future.
The Trust is ambitious for its academies and pupils and believes that with the right support everyone can achieve their best, regardless of their circumstances or background.
At Derby City Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress and achieve their potential in school.
All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible. At Ash Croft we have a graduated approach to SEND, ensuring early identification of needs and a continuum of support for children in order to enable them to make progress. Please refer to our SEND Policy which outlines the purpose, nature and management of special educational needs within our school.
