Special Educational Need and Disability

At OIA, provision for pupils with SEND is co-ordinated by the school SENDCo Mrs Kim Millican (Inclusion Lead)


There are times when some children need additional support during their school life. Olney Infant Academy is an inclusive school which offers a range of additional provision to support children with various SEND: including social, communication and interaction needs, learning difficulties, emotional and mental health needs and physical needs.

We endeavour to identify promptly a child’s particular needs and respond appropriately to enable them to make progress alongside their peers.

A systematic approach is essential within school with processes in place to ensure support and continuity of provision and effective communication with parents.  The Government’s ‘SEND Code of Practice (2014)’ provides the framework for these processes. The school’s SEN Policy is written to reflect Government policy in the Code of Practice.

We are proud to be part of the Inspiring Futures through Learning trust and all the family of schools follow the IFtL one-page profile for our learners with SEND and our strategy. Please see the videos below for further information:
