Our Inclusion Manager is Miss Zoe Horton (SENCO). If you have any questions regarding our Special Educational Needs and Disability provision, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kentmere Academy is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the children living in our local area.  We believe that all children, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

We believe that all children should be equally valued in school.  We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.

Kentmere Academy is committed to inclusion.  Part of the school’s strategic planning for improvement is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learners.  We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties.
