AEN/D at The Marsh Academy
AEN OPEN DAY Wednesday 27th March 2013
Many students require additional support at some stage during their time at school, both primary and secondary. We will be holding an informal ‘Drop-In’ which will provide an ideal opportunity to join us at The Marsh Academy to:
• Meet the AEN Team
• See what additional Support we offer in school
• Discuss any concerns or queries you may have in relation to your child

At The Marsh Academy we cater for all types of additional and special educational needs - defined as any type of barrier to learning which might affect a child’s ability to access the curriculum.
We work closely with the primary schools to ensure that information about any of these needs is transferred with the student. This enables us to plan ahead to meet individual needs as required.
All students complete CATs testing (Cognitive Ability Testing), during their three day induction, which provides vital information about the way in which each student learns.
If an additional or special need is identified we work quickly to ensure that we help the student in every way possible. We have a dedicated team of Curriculum Support Assistants (CSAs) who specialise in different areas, to enable the AEN Department to offer support in a variety of ways (see Support at The Marsh Academy).
