Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities information at the City of Derby Academy

We value all children and work together to help them to achieve and develop their potential.    

We aim to:

  • Effectively identify and assess the needs of all children 
  • Plan appropriate interventions to support the progress of pupils 
  • Monitor and review progress and attainment 
  • Work with parents because we believe they have an important role in supporting their child’s education 
  • Listen to the child and take their views into account, their happiness and success is paramount
