Special Educational Needs and Disability

We welcome all children to Outwood Academy Hemsworth and we prioritise admission for children with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

We have a comprehensive support programme and our policy is available below.

The Outwood Academy Hemsworth SEND Coordinator (SENDCo) is Miss N Benson, who you can contact via the details listed on our contact page or by emailing n.benson@hemsworth.outwood.com.

Concerns or complaints regarding provision for children with SEND

Any concerns or complaints about SEND provision by parents or carers should be initially raised informally, whether by e-mail, letter, or a telephone call with the SENDCo.

The SENDCo will investigate and report back within a week.

If the parents or carers continue to be dissatisfied, a complaint should be raised as per our complaints procedure by completing the Complaint Form at Appendix 1.
