SEND Information and The LINK (Learn, Inspire, Nurture & Kindness) at Bexhill Academy

Welcome to Bexhill Academy's SEND information page. We are proud to be a comprehensive, inclusive school. Students come to us with a wide range of abilities and skill-sets, and we celebrate the achievements and progress of all. We make every effort to meet the needs of students who require additional support with their academic or social development and are proud of our reputation for successful SEND provision.

The SEND Code of Practice (2014), Children and Families Act(2014), Equality Act (2010) and advice for schools DfE (2013) inform our practice at Bexhill Academy 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 school’s SEND policy directs the work of all staff working at Bexhill Academy ensuring all students are fully included in the life of the school and are supported to achieve their potential.

Our SENCO at Bexhill Academy is Mrs Lucy Culshaw - 01424 730722 ext 2264 email: lucy.culshaw@bexhillacademy.org
