In the Learning Academy Partnership, we are committed to providing high quality opportunities for all and provision that enables our children to be fully included in all aspects of their education and to achieve their potential.

We believe in an inclusive environment where the child is at the heart of everything we do. We value the importance of the parent partnership and working collaboratively to deliver a range of support that meets the needs of all learners.

We recognise that the education of children with or without special educational needs is underpinned by high quality teaching and compromised by anything less.
