SEND

We are in the process of uploading our SEND information to our new website

Darton Academy is fully inclusive, providing every opportunity for all students to develop their potential personally, socially, spiritually, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religious affiliation, social background, SEND or disability. Darton Academy is a new build and as such is fully accessible for students with a wide range of needs, including full wheelchair
access, height adjustable furniture, braille signage, and hearing loops.


A child or young person has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A child of compulsory academy age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
• has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
• has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream academies.

In order to support children with an identified additional need, plans are developed by the academy in partnership with families and outside agencies/specialist professionals, if appropriate, and are reviewed regularly
