The Macmillan Academy SEND department is highly experienced. The department works primarily with High Needs students, those with an EHCP and those with additional special educational needs and/or a disability.

The department is well resourced with a Learning Support Base, a classroom, an office and a range of specialist staff.

The SEND team works closely alongside the Pathway provision staff who provide support for students at KS3 and 4 who require a personalised curriculum and the intervention team who run Seclusion and the Student Support Base and who support students experiencing personal and SEMH difficulties.

The SEND team provide a wide range of support for students including:
  • Extended transitions
  • Additional support with literacy intervention
  • Targeted 1:1 and small group maths tutoring
  • Academic mentoring
  • Homework club
  • A personalised curriculum
  • Study skills support
