SEND Support

Introduction to Student Services

The Hayesbrook Academy caters for students who have a wide range of abilities and skills, and we celebrate the achievements and progress of all. We use our best endeavours to meet the needs of students who require additional support with their academic and/or social and emotional development.

At The Hayesbrook Academy, the SEND Code of Practice (2014), Children and Families Act (2014) and Equality Act (2010) inform our practice for students with special educational needs and disabilities. We fully recognise our legal responsibility regarding the education of children with special educational needs and follow set procedures for assessment, target setting, provision and review of progress. The Leigh Academies Trust SEND policy and The Hayesbrook  Academy Local Offer, directs the work of all staff, ensuring all students are fully included in the life of the academy and are supported to achieve their potential.

If you would like further information about how the academy supports students with special educational needs and disabilities, please read The Hayesbrook Academy Local Offer and SEND Information Report by clicking on the links below.
