Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
Mulberry Academy Shoreditch is a truly inclusive academy. Inclusion is our highest priority. The achievement of students with Special Educational Needs is outstanding and the personalised support we put in place for students means they are able to flourish as independent and confident learners. The base for our Special Educational Needs provision is a dedicated and well equipped suite of rooms. This area is home to the Learning Support Unit and Pastoral Support Centre. One of the most important aspects of provision is the in-class support given by our highly skilled and committed team of Teaching Assistants working across all curriculum areas. We also have a team of Learning Mentors who support students both in and out of the classroom. We recognise that, for students to succeed, curriculum access to all subject areas is essential. This can only be achieved where students can confidently read, understand and respond to the material being studied. At our academy, we are committed to improving literacy skills for all students. Our highly experienced Literacy Team constantly promote the importance of reading for pleasure and specifically targets those students for whom additional support is required. This is done through a variety of interventions including one-to-one and small group literacy interventions. Our aim is to ensure that poor literacy is never a barrier to achievement and we strive to enable all of our students to have regular access to a wide range of high quality literature.
Gifted and talented students
Gifted and talented students are stretched and challenged during lessons to ensure they achieve their full potential. There is also a wide variety of extra-curricular activities such as university visits, business mentoring and debating clubs which are aimed at raising student aspirations and adding extra elements of academic challenge to the curriculum.
