Moorgate Primary Academy’s core moral purpose is encapsulated in the vision statement for the academy: Achieve, Challenge, Enjoy!
Moorgate Primary Academy regards pupils as having special educational needs if they have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of learners of the same age or if they have a disability which either prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities provided for learners of the same age.
These children will need help that is ‘additional to or different from’ help that is given to other children of the same age. At Moorgate Primary Academy, we operate an equal opportunities policy for all learners, including those with special needs.
The categories of special educational need as set out in the SEN Code of Practice (2014) are:
- communication and interaction
- cognition and learning
- social, emotional and mental health difficulties
- sensory and/or physical needs
