At Ark Dickens Primary Academy we offer a graduated approach to meeting the needs of our pupils.

In class, for all pupils, you can expect to see 6 key principles driving our work: High expectations; excellent teaching; more time for learning; depth before breadth; exemplary behaviour and know every pupil.

This is underpinned by our vision of learning for life, aiming for exellence and  values of:

  • Believe 
  • Be Brave
  • Be Kind 
  • Be Here

Special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for others of the same age. This means provision that goes beyond the differentiated approaches and learning arrangements normally provided as part of high quality, personalised teaching. It may take the form of additional support from within a setting or require involvement of specialist staff or support services. All teachers in Ark Dickens Primary Academy are teachers of SEN pupils and as such provide quality first teaching which takes account of the particular individual needs of pupils with SEN within the classroom
