Irlam and Cadishead Academy is an inclusive school. We strive to create a learning environment which enables all our students to access their learning, make progress and to flourish in the classroom. We also work to create an inclusive culture and aim to be responsive to the diversity of children's backgrounds, interests, experience, knowledge and skill.
The Academy works closely with many external and specialist support providers who are able to work with us in supporting student to access learning. Students who are experiencing medical or personal problems are fully supported to enable them to integrate quickly into school life and their curriculum.  

We place an emphasis on strong support for students with additional needs. These needs may be learning, social, emotional, behavioural or medical. Where necessary, we provide individual, small group and classroom support for all students that require extra help to be successful and make progress with their learning. The learning of these students is monitored carefully and intervention strategies are put in place quickly to ensure students make the progress they are capable of. Students are supported with strategies that will help them in their classroom and around the school.
The Learning Support Team works with parents, students and subject staff to provide quality learning opportunities for all our SEND pupils. Students who are identified with an Special Educational Need will receive a One Page Profile, allowing all members of staff to clearly see what support is needed throughout the student’s day.
