An Overview of Special Educational Needs and Disability
The new SEND reforms and Code of Practice (January 2015) identifies four broad areas of Special Educational Needs.

Cognition and Learning

What Does it Mean?

Children and young people with learning difficulties will learn at a slower pace than other children and may have greater difficulty than their peers in acquiring basic literacy or numeracy skills or in understanding concepts, even with appropriate differentiation.

Types of Provision at Iqra Academy

All learners at Iqra Academy receive Quality First teaching and learning.

Classroom environments are inclusive and learning tasks are differentiated, imaginative and purposeful.

Where learners continue to struggle with reading, writing or numeracy, they may be identified for intervention groups, either within the SEND department, as part of the Support Curriculum or within the English and Maths Departments.

Communication and Interaction

What Does it Mean?

This is a term used to describe a young person’s ability to interact and communicate with their peers and other people.

Young people with difficulties in this area may also find the following a challenge:

  • Forming sounds, words and sentences
  • Initiating and maintaining conversation
  • Processing and following verbal instructions
  • Expressing ideas, opinions and communicating wishes
  • Using the appropriate words and vocabulary

Types of Provision at Iqra Academy

At Iqra Academy, lessons will be delivered through a range of teaching and learning strategies and a multi-sensory approach therefore ensuring that all learners have an opportunity to be successful and achieve their potential.

Where learners continue to struggle within this area, they may be identified for further intervention developing language, vocabulary and confidence.

Physical and Sensory

What Does it Mean?

There is a wide range of sensory and physical difficulties that affect children and young people such as Visual Impairment, Hearing Impairment or Physical Disabilities.

Types of Provision a Iqra Academy

We have accessible learning environment for all pupils.

Classrooms are well resourced with a variety of equipment allowing teachers to plan a multi-sensory lesson catering for the needs of all students.

We have an experienced student welfare team that oversee the medical provision for our students.
