SEN Policy & Information Report

LIPA Sixth Form College is committed to fully supporting students with a wide range of learning support needs.

LIPA Sixth Form College has recently achieved the SEND Inclusion Award (SENDIA).

The SEND Inclusion Award offers mainstream education settings the opportunity to gain accreditation for high-quality provision and outcomes for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Schools are required to reflect on and improve their provision in line with a series of objectives that fulfil both Ofsted criteria and the SEND Code of Practice*. Specifically, the award focuses on ‘outcomes’ for pupils and how schools can demonstrate the impact of their SEND provision. The award leads schools through a process of self-evaluation, action planning and evidence collection before final verification and accreditation.

For more information, contact Amy Deane, our Inclusion Manager and SENDCO on a.deane@lipasixthformcollege.org or 0151 330 3232.

We welcome applications from everyone with a passion for the creative and performing arts. If you have particular educational needs and/or a disability, you may wish to have an informal confidential discussion with Amy Deane, our SENCO/Inclusion Manager, before submitting your application - please telephone 0151 330 3232 or email a.deane@lipasixthformcollege.org in the first instance.

Once you have accepted a place with us, you can expect our SENDCO and inclusion team to make contact to offer support across a wide range of needs - personal, academic, social, emotional, health and/or welfare-related.

Our SEN report is available for download from this page - it sets out our local offer and approach to SEN, and explains how we work with students to ensure everyone with SEN is fully supported during their studies.

If you have any questions about our support for students with SEN and/or disabilities, please contact Amy Deane on 0151 330 3232.
