“Pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), benefit from an increasingly ambitious curriculum. They achieve well.”
“Staff support all pupils at the early stage of reading, particularly pupils with SEND, to catch up quickly with their peers.”
“Teachers make suitable adaptations to activities so that pupils with SEND learn the same ambitious curriculum as other pupils. Pupils with SEND and disadvantaged pupils achieve well.”
“His experience at Manchester Academy has been exceptional. This has enabled him to gain confidence in his own learning abilities. In turn, he's now happily completing homework tasks and seeking out additional support at homework club, something I didn't expect to see!"
“He's valued as an individual and is embraced as a valuable member of the school community.”
“He's encouraged to take part in activities and events outside of his comfort zone which both school and I know that with a little support and encouragement, he will enjoy.’’
“Overall, I was very nervous of my son’s ability to cope in secondary school, however the staff at the ARC have made the journey much more pleasant than I hoped.”
