SEN and Disability

Our School Ethos

At Bardfield Academy, we value the individuality of the children in our care. We are committed to giving every child the opportunity to achieve their full potential, and we do this by taking account of each individual’s life experiences and needs. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and have high expectations for all children, irrespective of ethnicity, faith, attainment, age, gender, disability or background.

Children with SEND are fully included in all aspects of school life. This includes after school activities, trips and in Year 6 a residential experience. The school plans well to meet the needs of all pupils so that they actively participate and have the same opportunities as children with no SEN/D.

Please find below our latest SEN/D Information Report and our SEN Inclusion Policy:

SEND Engagement

Dear parent/carer,

Essex County Council is launching an engagement with the parents and carers of children and young people who require additional support on the future of special educational needs in Essex. We are sharing information about the work we have undertaken to date, the continued challenges we face and seeking your views on our vision and future strategy.  The survey will run from 22nd March 2019 to 31st May 2019 and the engagement document and survey can be accessed via .  We have asked schools and education settings to help us by sharing the details but all responses should be via the survey.

To request a paper copy of this survey or an easy read version please email .

Unfortunately it is not possible to respond to individual comments and questions.
