Reduced school timetable sessions

Pupils with SEND (Special Educational Needs) including those with learning disabilities, have a right to receive special educational provision. We can provide an alternative provision for additional support in education settings. Pupils ages 4-11 who are on a reduced timetable in upper yearly years foundation or in primary school, can continue their learning journey with extracurricular sessions with Brackley STEM Academy. You will discover the right level of support that your child needs.

There are various provision areas supporting the primary sector to further enhance the learning development.

A child with an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) and does not attend a primary school or receive part time education due to social, emotional and mental health complexities, we can provide an inclusion for ages 4-11. An EHC plan can only be issued after a pupil has gone through the process of an EHCP assessment.

We can provide extracurricular sessions during term time only for pupils who are on a reduced school timetable and have an arrangement with the school or are either on a EOTAS programme (Education Other than at School). There are other factors for pupils who attend our class settings during school hours and added support to engage in an educational setting with various learning advantages.

The four areas of SEND need are:

  • communication and interaction
  • cognition and learning
  • social, emotional and mental health difficulties
  • sensory and or physical needs
    • These disabilities could include a:
      • vision impairment
