Special Educational Needs & Disability
King’s Cross Academy is committed to meeting the needs of all pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
Our expectation is that children and young people with SEND, as with all pupils, will receive an education at the Academy that enables them to:
- achieve their very best
- become confident individuals living fulfilling lives
- make a successful transition into the next stage of their education
We will always do our utmost to ensure that a pupil with SEND gets the support they need. This means doing everything we can to meet the pupils’ educational needs.
You will find more information on our special education needs and disability offer below.

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) at the Academy
Inclusion is at the heart of King’s Cross Academy. We believe firmly in success for all children.
We provide a rich and engaging curriculum yet we know that some children will require extra provision that is additional to, or different from, the other children in their class.
Where this is the case, we will look at whether the child would benefit from being placed on the Special Education Needs Register. We would always do this in conjunction with parents. This allows the needs of the child to be considered in an in-depth way through a Targeted Action Plan (TAP). This plan allows for additional or different provisions to be planned. These plans are reviewed and updated regularly.
Some children have more complex needs, and in these instances, we may draw upon specialist services, including our own speech and language therapist, mental health professionals, educational psychologists and occupational therapists.
For a small number of our pupils, their needs are such that they require an Educational and Health Care Plan. The school works closely with parents and Camden SEN team where this is the case.
We know that for families with a child with SEN, things can be difficult and confusing at times. As well as supporting the child, it is vital that we work closely with families too. Our inclusion manager, Kay Baxter, is the main point of contact for all families with children with SEN.
The King’s Cross Academy SEND report sets out how we provide for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) throughout their time with us. To access the SEND report, please click here.
