Special Educational Needs

At St Mary Magdalene Academy we actively seek to promote and enable the participation, on an equal basis, of all young people in education, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, background or prior attainment, and take into account individual needs.

Inclusion relates to all aspects of school life, not just the academic curriculum. We aim to remove barriers to learning and participation and provide clear structures, close monitoring systems, and outstanding teaching and learning experiences so that every child progresses and thrives.

Schools Information Report

This report answers some of the most frequently asked questions about the school and special educational needs. 



We are committed to meeting the needs of pupils with special educational needs and evaluating their progress to ensure that they reach their full potential. In partnership with outside agencies, the SEN team supports pupils with special needs by providing training and advice for teaching staff to ensure good progression in the classroom and by providing small group interventions where the need is identified.

In Years 7 & 8 we have a combined discreet class for those pupils who are working below key stage or who have a disability that prevents them from accessing a differentiated mainstream curriculum.  In this class, known as Homebase, teaching content is focused on literacy and numeracy alongside an adapted core of Maths, English, Science, Humanities, and Spanish.  There is a high ratio of adult pupil support.

The SENCo is Ceinwen Gilmore. She can be reached on 020 7502 4725.
