Identifying SEND at Dawley Academy
All children have a right to quality first teaching which provides appropriate differentiation and support to identify their needs. The first step in identifying a child with SEND is through this quality first teaching using the approach of Assess, Plan, Do, Review (ADPR).
A special educational need can be helped by putting extra support in at school, providing appropriate interventions, additional resources and in working with partnership with parents and, where required, external agencies.

How do we support pupils with SEND
We understand that children learn and develop in different ways. Teachers and teaching assistants recognise this and use different teaching styles, resources and plan different levels of work in the classroom to cater for the various ways children learn. However, many children, at some time in their school life, need extra help.
At the Academy we have a whole school provision map which outlines what we have in place to support children with their different levels of need.
