SEND 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 been reaccredited for the SEND Inclusion Award (SENDIA) in 2023 after achieving this award originally in 2019. 

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.

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, SENDCO, before submitting your application - please telephone 0151 330 3232 or email 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 SEND report is available for download from this page - it sets out our local offer and approach to SEND, and explains how we work with students to ensure everyone with SEND is fully supported during their studies.
