Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

SEN & Disabilities

Information on the Local Authority's Local Offer can be found at: www.croydon.gov.uk/education/special-educational-needs

At HPAPW we are a vibrant and inclusive learning community with high aspirations for all our pupils. We aim to make sure through personalised learning that each child’s needs are addressed. Teachers are committed to meeting the needs of all our pupils and we have a strong team of additional learning support staff to draw on within the Academy.

Children joining us with little previous schooling or who are new to learning English are assessed on entry so that basic skills can be acquired. We work closely with a wide range of more specialised services to bring additional expertise into the academy for those children who need a modified curriculum or an individualised programme. As an example, our speech and language therapist works closely with our teachers to ensure early intervention secures accelerated progress for children in Reception Class.

It is also worth noting that from 1st September 2014, there are some changes to SEN legislation, following the Children’s and Families Act 2014. A summary of these changes are outlined below. To view the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014, please click here.

Harris Primary Academy Purley Way's visions for pupils with SEND

Harris Primary Academy Purley Way is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education for all children. We believe that all children, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs as well as every other student, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. This curriculum should be accessible to them, and they will be fully included in all aspects of Academy life. We recognise that pupils learn at different rates and that there are many factors affecting achievement, including ability, emotional state, age and maturity. We are particularly aware of the needs of our pupils, for whom maturity is a crucial factor in terms of readiness to learn. We believe that many pupils, at some time in their Academy career, may experience difficulties which affect their learning, and we recognise that these may be long or short term. At the Academy we aim to identify these needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning contexts which enable every child to achieve to his or her full potential. 


The SEN Code of Practice key changes

The Code of Practice (2014) covers the 0-25 age range and includes guidance relating to disabled children and young people as well as those with SEN

  • There is a clearer focus on the participation of children and young people and parents in decision-making at individual and strategic levels
  • There is a stronger focus on high aspirations and on improving outcomes for children and young people
  • It includes guidance on the joint planning and commissioning of services to ensure close co-operation between education, health and social care
  • It includes guidance on publishing a Local Offer of support for children and young people with SEN or disabilities
  •  For children and young people with more complex needs a co-ordinated assessment process and the new 0-25 Education, Health and Care plan (EHC plan) replace statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDAs)
  • There is a greater focus on support that enables those with SEN to succeed in their education and make a successful transition to adulthood
