"Linden Road Academy is a friendly and diverse school, where all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), are welcomed."

"Leaders have designed a broad and ambitious curriculum for pupils, including those who attend the specially resourced provision for pupils with SEND."

"Leaders have effective systems in place to identify and support pupils with SEND. Those pupils in the specially resourced provision receive the support they need, including specialist support, to access the full curriculum wherever possible. Pupils with SEND participate fully in the daily life of the school."

“Pupils who have special educational needs, (SEN) and/or disabilities, make good progress because of the highly skilled support that they receive.  


We are proud of the provision that we provide for all children.  Our provision for children with additional needs and disabilities (SEND) is a strength of the school.  We are proud to have Tameside's Primary aged Hearing Resource Base provision incorporated into our school.  The base has capacity for 8 children.

The Academy's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Miss Rachell Farebrother. You can contact her on 0161 320 0002.
