Inclusion Programme

At St Michael’s Academy we value diversity as a rich resource which supports the learning of all. 

The educational experiences that we provide help develop pupils’ achievements and recognise their individuality.  To support this we have developed different models of inclusion.

  • Individual pupils from St Michael’s Academy access programmes of work at Fiveways School.
  • Dual placements for individual pupils.
  • Group initiatives with pupils from local schools.
  • Our well qualified and experienced teachers and teaching assistants are able to support pupils with emotional and behavioural needs, autism, ADHD, physical impairments, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, speech and language needs and a variety of medical conditions.
  • We also have staff who are experienced in teaching English as a second language. 
  • Our highly experienced SENCo works extremely closely with numerous outside agencies to ensure the provision for our pupils with additional needs is well planned and helps to overcome any barriers to their learning.
  • Reduced and/or individual timetable.
