The SEND Department supports teaching and learning of students with special educational needs, including those with statements, in the following areas;
Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) including dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia;
Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD); and
Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMD)
The SEN Department is located in the heart of the school and is easily accessible to both students and staff.
Our approach is based on thoughtful planning to meet the changing needs of individuals and groups of students through in-depth monitoring and assessment as part of the whole Inclusion Department and in partnership with teachers, families and professionals to enhance understanding of students and implement complementary provision.
In response to the Children and Families Bill, Local Authorities are required to publish information about the provision that is available in their area for children and young people from 0-25 who have special educational needs. This is called the Local Offer.
The link to the local offer for Northamptonshire can be found on the county council website

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 require all schools to publish and keep under review information regarding our provision for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). At Rushden Academy we hope parents/carers of current and prospective pupils find the following information helpful. We encourage all interested parties to contact the school for more information (01933 350391).
