Specialist Provision

TVED specialist provision and placement pathways

We know that children with SEND respond to different learning pathways, and those pathways must be responsive to need and meet individual outcomes. That is why at TVED we ensure that through a process of assess, plan, do and review, we are constantly monitoring the progress of our learners to ensure their learning pathway and provision is meeting need. We do this by creating 4 bespoke learning ‘provision pathways’:

Provision pathway

Special Academy

Below is a ‘front door’ profile of our Trust SEND designations and areas of specialism within each TVED academy. You can read the individual academies’ SEND information reports on their websites, as well as information about the relevant local authority’s Local Offer, which sets out local SEND provision and support for children and families. Click on the academy logo below to a direct link to the SEND area within the academy homepage.

A key point of contact within each of our academies is the Headteacher and SENDCo, who lead on the SEND strategy under the direction of the CEO and Trust Directors.
