School SEN Offer

Welcome to Salendine Nook High Academy’s Additional Needs pages. We enter a new era with the introduction of the Children’s Act 2014.

We want your child to do well and enjoy their time at school but understand that children sometimes need extra help. We provide first class support to some 150 pupils on our database and want them to be fully involved in the life of Salendine Nook High.



This section of the website is to tell you what we can offer your child. We work very hard to support children in different ways. We have a Learning Support Team who focus on children who need help with their English, Maths and other learning issues and a Pupil Support Team who focus children who might need help with friendships and behaviour. Sometimes both teams are involved in helping a child

What you can expect from us

  • As parents and carers you can expect the Additional Needs Team to:
  • Listen to points you raise and worries about your child
  • Regular meetings, how often will depend on how much help your child needs.
  • An Additional Needs Plan if they need one, which will show what their needs are and how the can be addressed
  • Come and speak to you if you come to Reception if you need to speak to someone urgently
  • Monitor and track how your child is doing and feed this back, via the form/Head of Year
  • Provide a telephone or e-mail based consultations in response to the instance of enquiry, to provide strategies to support in the short –term.
