Statement

Colley Lane Primary Academy is a mainstream school with three form entry classes from Nursery to Year 6. We are proud to be a part of the Windsor Academy Trust and work collaboratively with other schools in the Trust to provide an exciting, engaging and up to date curriculum for all learners. The school is resourced for learning and teaching in the 21st century, where a range of different learning styles are catered for by dedicated and enthusiastic staff members. The welcoming and inclusive ethos of the school ensures that all pupils feel part of the school community and work together in an environment when they feel confident to take risks and try new things.

We aim to provide a fully inclusive main stream primary provision. It is our priority to help children aspire and learn by providing a holistic education. We believe that this will help them achieve their potential, academically, personally, socially and emotionally in all areas of the curriculum regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identify, physical ability or educational needs.

The Inclusion team at Colley Lane Primary Academy supports all of our pupils with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) to ensure that their learning needs are met. We ensure that the learning environments are adapted and that individual needs are recognised in an inclusive and support way.

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 Foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils, for whom maturity is a crucial factor in terms of readiness to learn. We believe in both early identification and early intervention. We understand that many pupils, at some time in their school career, may experience difficulties which affect their learning, and we recognise that these may be long or short term.

If you are worried about your child’s learning needs please make an appointment via the school office with the SENco, Miss Roberts who will be happy to discuss any concerns you may have.
