Catcote Academy

Special academy providing education for children and young people aged 11-25.

We aim to ensure that Catcote Academy is a friendly and secure place, with a stimulating and rewarding environment. We want every student to make as much progress as possible and aim to offer enriching experiences alongside a broad, balanced and personalised curriculum, using a range of strategies and approaches appropriate to individual needs and learning styles. The Academy adopts a proactive approach to disability equality, incorporating it into all decisions and activities.

Policies are in place to ensure the wellbeing of the whole school community, and that the aims set out above are supported.

The Academy subscribes to the vision for high aspirations and expectations set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014, and work to realise it for all of our students. The Code of Practice states that:

All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:

Achieve their best; Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives; and
Make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.

Students at Catcote Academy have a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities, as well as lots of strengths and abilities.  All students have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan or Statement of SEN.  In Hartlepool, EHC Plans are known as ONE Plans.

The SEND Code of Practice 2015 provides guidance to schools on how to implement the law.  It groups needs in different areas:

  • Communicating and interacting
  • Cognition and learning
  • Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
  • Sensory and/or physical needs
  • We have an Admissions Policy which sets out the different kinds of needs that we can meet at the Academy.  All students have a moderate, severe or profound learning difficulty.
