What We Offer

Salford City Academy’s innovative and diverse transition programme is designed to include a variety of events in order to achieve all our aims for supporting students in the transition move. Our primary transition ethos encompasses a well-designed programme to maintain the sense of belonging felt in primary; to provide care, guidance and support; and to dispel student worries and fears about the move ahead.

We offer extra transition days to vulnerable students that have been identified by their Primary and the Inclusions team. This ensure that these vulnerable students have the extra support they require to make the transition to secondary school successful.

If you would like to discuss this further or if you have any questions, please contact the Transition team via our dedicated email address

Special Educational Needs


Salford City Academy’s vision for students with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is that they are provided with an education that enables them to achieve their best; become confident individuals living fulfilling lives; and to make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further education or training.


Salford City Academy will:

· have the highest aspirations for all young people with SEND and set appropriate targets for them

· keep young people with SEND informed so that they know precisely where they are in their learning and development

· ensure that decisions are informed by the insights of parents/carers and those of the young people themselves

· keep under review the additional or different provision that is made for them

· ensure that the approaches used are based on the best possible evidence and are having the required impact on progress.


Message from the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo)

Starting secondary school is a big step for every child, and for those with special educational needs or disabilities, it can be an even greater challenge. As a parent/ carer, you’ll want to make sure that we know how to meet your child’s needs.


I would like to reassure you that your child will receive the very best care from my team. We offer both in-class teaching assistant support as well as a menu of bespoke interventions tailored to your child’s individual needs. These include (but are not limited to) literacy and numeracy interventions, anger management, anxiety support, self-esteem workshops and counselling. Additionally, we work closely with a number of external professionals such as the Educational Psychology Service, Speech and Language Therapists, Salford Learning Support Service and CAMHS.


Every child on our SEND register is allocated a dedicated key worker who will work closely with students and parents/ carers. Your keyworker will prepare a student passport and manage a 12 week Plan, Do, Review Cycle in line with guidance issued in the SEND Code of Practice. Your key worker will ensure that all classroom teachers are fully informed about your child’s needs and how best to support them. Salford City Academy is committed to providing expert support and resources for children with SEND to fulfil their individual potential.


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries at all regarding your child’s transition to us. My email address is:

I look forward to meeting you in person.

Laura Dawson
