The Boulevard Academy is a fully inclusive academy where everyone matters.
Our individualised approach enables the adults to meet the needs of all students ranging from cognitive support to emotional and mental health support to medical needs.
The Definition of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEN/D):
Students have special educational needs if they have difficulty accessing the curriculum, temporary or more long-term, which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.
TStudents have difficulty accessing the curriculum if they:
Students who experience difficulty in accessing the curriculum may also have a particular gift or talent. This addressed through the Able, Gifted and Talented Provision, in addition to provisions made for their specific need.
Special Educational Provision may be triggered when students fail to achieve adequate progress, despite having had access to a differentiated programme. Parents and staff will be informed that the child has special educational needs and appropriate provision identified to meet the student’s individual need(s) will be made.
Lack of adequate progress may be indicated by:
|Discrete SEN||Both SEN & Disability||Disability||
Emotional Behavioural Difficulties - social factors
Minor speech impairment
Mild learning difficulties
Long-term motor impairment
(other factors - medical/mental health)
Mental Health issues

Prior to your child arriving at The Boulevard Academy we need to have an open, honest and transparent conversation about the needs of your child. This will not stop us accepting your child but it will ensure we have everything in place in enable them to be successful and reach their potential.
As an Academy we have a statutory obligation to follow the SEND Code of Practice 0-25.
In addition our school offer is also found here.
As you may be aware, each local authority has set up a website – the local offer – as a means of providing information to all parents of children and young people with SEND. The local offer website was introduced as part of the SEND reforms alongside the introduction of EHCPs.
The website has information about local services, leisure activities and where to go for support and advice relating to a child’s SEND.
Ideally, the site should provide a ‘one stop shop’ for all information a parent could need about supporting their child.
