Our curriculum is designed to provide access and opportunity for all children who attend our school. It complies with the requirements set out in the SEND Code of Practice in providing for pupils with special needs. We will always provide additional resources and support for pupils with special need and our curriculum may be adapted in consultation with parents.

Our SEND Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is part of a CELT-wide SENDCo team, based at the Integrated Health Centre at Newquay Tretherras, and has access to a very wide range of support services and expertise within that team.

We provide an Education and Health Care Plan (ECHP) for each of the pupils on the Register of Need. This will set out the nature of the special need and how we will meet the need. It will also set out targets for improvement. Our SENDCo is responsible for reviewing and monitoring the progress of each pupil at regular intervals and liaising with staff over intervention strategies and catch up arrangements.

Teaching at Newquay Primary Academy is based on the teacher’s knowledge of each pupil’s level of attainment: a prime focus is to develop further their knowledge and skills. We strive to ensure that all tasks set are appropriate to each child’s level of ability. When planning work for children with SEND, we give due regard to information and targets contained in the children’s Individual Education Health Care Plans (EHCPs) which are reviewed termly by the SENDCo and monitored by the CELT Strategic Lead for SEND.
