Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Blackpool Gateway Academy values the abilities and achievements of all of its pupils, and is committed to providing for each pupil the best possible environment for learning. We recognise the entitlement of all pupils to a balanced, broadly based curriculum. Our SEND policy reinforces the need for teaching that is fully inclusive. The Inclusion Team and Governing Body will ensure that appropriate provision will be made for all pupils with SEND. At Blackpool Gateway Academy we are developing a SEND team.
