Comments from a 2022-23 SEND review by Hillingdon Principal SEND Officer
Key Strengths at Cranford Park Academy:
Children’s engagement and attitude towards learning.
Effective use of SEND resources such as visuals and appropriate differentiation being used within the classrooms. Class teachers were providing scaffolds that allowed pupils to access the learning.
Priority and investment within SEND. The school has invested significantly in formulating a SEND team with specialised teachers which enables learning barriers to be removed and results in SEND pupils having a more personalised learning experience.
The environment is conducive to learning and there is consistency in working walls, class displays, and visual timetables.
‘The Principal prioritises SEND and inclusion within the school and the school’s vision and values incorporate inclusion.’
‘The vision and passion for children and young people with SEND was evident.’
‘To strive for good outcomes the school has good relationships with parents and outside agencies.’
‘Every year group was consistent and working at the same pace, lessons had provided appropriate scaffolding for pupils. This allowed all pupils to have the same learning experience.’
