The ethos within the school, driven by the Senior Leadership Team and adopted by all staff, is an inclusive one. We place strong value on both academic achievement and personal development, believing that students should achieve their full potential, learning alongside their peers within a nurturing environment.

We work diligently with students, teachers and parents/carers in order to ensure that all SEND students receive a rich curriculum which reflects their individual needs and aspirations. There is a clear focus on teaching and learning within the academy that runs in conjunction with a commitment to developing well-rounded, industrious young people who are happy and responsible for shaping their own purposeful futures.

Dixons Allerton Academy is committed to ensuring that the correct support is available at the right time in a child’s development. This involves accurate identification and assessment of need, appropriate intervention and robust monitoring of progress. We strive to create a supportive environment where young people are happy and enjoy a wide range of interests.

Success is achieved, in part, through a dedicated team of teaching and support personnel exhibiting high expectations for scholars with SEND. However, the key factor underpinning all provision throughout the academy is our child-centred approach. In addition, we acknowledge the importance of a collaborative approach between students, parents/carers and academy staff. As such, we believe in a friendly, open and transparent approach to supporting the families of learners with SEND.

We have an accessible and approachable team of staff who are committed to working with students, parents and the wider community to ensure the best possible outcomes for learners with SEND.

Our academy SENCO is Jodie McDonald. Special needs provision primary level are overseen by Jodie McDonald. For further information, or to speak to our team please contact us on 01274 089890 or email admin@dixonsaa.com using Inclusion as the subject heading.
