SEN Information 2019-2020
Enfield Academy is part of the Enquire Learning Trust and we ensure that all pupils,
regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
We are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special
Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.
The four broad ‘areas of need’ are:
- Communication and Interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
- Sensory and Physical Needs.
The LA Local Offer
Since September 2014 the New Code of Practice states that all local authorities should publish their local offer. The local offer provides information on what services children, young people and their families can expect from the authority. Knowing what is available gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for your child.

The School Local Offer
This utilises the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEN pupils as determined by school policy, and the provision that the school is able to meet.
Your Child has Special Educational Needs. What can we at offer you?
At Enfield Academy, we embrace the fact that every child is different, and, therefore,
the educational needs of every child is different; this is certainly the case for children with additional needs.
Please read our SEN Information Report to understand our school local offer.
SEND Code of Practice accompanies this legislation and it can be found on the Department for Education's website:
