East Leake Academy aims to support students with special educational needs by seeking to remove barriers to learning and participation, ensuring all students have access to an appropriate education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their personal potential.

We work collaboratively with outside agencies ensuring specialist advice and provision supports effective teaching and learning.

What is the Local Offer?

In September 2014 the government made a lot of changes to the way that children and young people aged 0 – 25, with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are supported. This included making local authorities produce a ‘ SEND Local Offer’.

The SEND Local Offer aims to bring together helpful and useful information for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families. It is a comprehensive guide to services and support all in one place. Please watch the video at the bottom of this page to find out more.

You can find Nottinghamshire’s Local Offer here.

Policies and reports

You can find our SEND policy on our dedicated policies page and a copy of our SEND report below.

We recognise that many students will have special needs at some time during their academy life. In implementing this policy, we believe students will be helped to overcome their difficulties. Whilst many factors contribute to the range of difficulties experienced by some children, we believe that much can be done to overcome them by parents, teachers and students working together.
