SEN & Disabilities

SEN & Disabilities

Harris Academy Beulah Hill is a fully inclusive mainstream school, working towards an ethos of high quality teaching and inclusion for all.  At Harris Academy Beulah Hill, all pupils are valued equally, regardless of where their abilities lie, with the academy being committed to developing ‘the best in everyone’.

We adhere to the principles outlined in the Equality Act (2010) and The SEND Code of Practice, which place strong emphasis on reasonable adjustments and Early Intervention.

At Harris Academy Beulah Hill, students are encouraged to achieve their full potential, whatever their academic or physical ability, through the provision of a curriculum that is balanced and challenging in both content and styles of learning, in order to foster independent learning and develop life-long skills. Work is differentiated for students with SEND to ensure that teaching and learning is at the appropriate level for their individual needs. 

To enable the child and young person to participate, learn and make progress, we aim to:

  • remove barriers from learning
  • ensure that high-quality adaptive teaching (including differentiation) should be the first reaction to any possible special education need;
  • put effective special education provision in place.

We believe that students achieve at their best if they feel safe, healthy, confident and happy and therefore we do our best to support all our students to develop good self-esteem and personal fulfilment.

Details can be downloaded here of our local SEN provision offer. This comprises part of the Croydon offer of provision overall. To see the SEN provision in Croydon, click here:


At our school we have a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENDCo) who manages a team consisting of an assistant SENDCo, and five Teaching assistants.  Our SENDCo oversees the assessment of the needs of our students and plans appropriate support and interventions.  The SENDCo coordinates liaison through our internal Inclusion Team with a range of external professionals and ensures that recommendations and advice from all professionals is implemented and reviewed.  The SENDCo, in liaison with staff, also identifies students who may be eligible for additional support throughout their education and in public exams. 

The SENDCo is Salome Houghton

Engagement with Parents/Carers:

Parents are welcome any time to make an appointment to meet with either the subject/form teacher or SENCo to discuss their child’s progress.  We believe that a student’s education should be a partnership between parents, teachers, and the student themselves. 

We therefore

  • Share professional reports with parents/carers
  • Identify students with a high level of need who will be provided with a personalised student profile identifying their strengths, needs and recommendations for teachers
  • Communicate with parents/carers of students with EHCPs on a termly basis to discuss provision, support and progress
  • Hold annual reviews of EHCPs to discuss provision, support and progress

Identify students through various means to provide early intervention

Arrangements for specialist expertise from outside the school:

Our school has access to support from a range of external professionals and may source that support based on the individual needs of our students.


The school follows the graduated response: Assess, Plan, Do, Review.


Students receive support on different levels:


The SEND Code of Practice sets out four headings under which a student might be considered to have special and additional needs:

Cognition and learning

Cognition and learning difficulties cover a wide range of needs and abilities. Cognition and learning difficulties may affect all areas of the curriculum, or they may only impact on specific areas such as reading, writing, spelling and/or numeracy.

Communication and Interaction:

Communication needs cover a range of difficulties such as: producing speech sounds accurately, stammering, voice problems, such as hoarseness and loss of voice, understanding language (i.e., making sense of what people say), using language including words and sentences and interacting with others (e.g., difficulties understanding and using the non-verbal rules of good communication, using language in different ways to question, clarify or describe things, or taking into account other people’s perspectives)

Social, Emotional and Mental Health

Social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs are a type of special educational needs in which children and young people have difficulties in managing their emotions and behaviour. They may often show inappropriate responses and feelings to situations.
This means that they may have trouble in building and maintaining relationships with peers and adults; they may also struggle to engage with learning and to cope in the classroom without additional strategies and interventions. Children with SEMH will often feel anxious, scared and misunderstood.

Physical and sensory

Sensory impairments can be defined as an impairment that affects a child or young person’s ability to access auditory or visual information. Physical impairments usually originate from neurological or metabolic causes and can require specific intervention.
