SEN Information

Special Educational Needs (SEN) at Thornhill Academy

Thornhill Academy is an inclusive school, which ensures that students, parents/carers and staff work together to make sure that the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN) are met.  The school recognises and works towards supporting students with needs in four broad areas:

  • Communication and interaction

  • Cognition and Learning

  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health

  • Sensory and/or Physical.

    Some students with an SEN may have a diagnosed learning disability such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or ASD, others may have a more generalised learning need.  The school works closely with students, to ensure that their needs are met within lessons, and that they make progress throughout their time here.
