At Badock’s Wood E-ACT Academy it is the responsibility of all our staff to support all pupils at the academy.

Teaching assistants deliver quality interventions every afternoon to support children with the learning they have been exposed to during the day or to pre-teach for the following day.

We take the pastoral care of the children very seriously and offer reading clubs, art and lego clubs and a quiet lunch club to support well-being. We have regular interventions from an educational psychologist and our learning mentor supports children with daily personalised sessions.

We employ our own speech and language therapist to support the children’s speech and undertake a rigorous screening check on entry to Reception to quickly and effectively support children with weight, hearing or speech difficulties.

Supporting Pupils with Medical Needs

E-ACT is committed to ensuring that all students with medical conditions can access and enjoy the same opportunities as any other student and to ensuring that they are able to play a full and active role in school life, remain healthy and achieve their academic potential.

E-ACT will ensure that its academies implement and maintain an effective management system for the administration of medicines to all students in our care in order to ensure that appropriate support is provided to individual students with medical needs.

Please contact our Individual Health Care Plan Lead, Oli Laken if you have any questions regarding your child’s medical needs.

Supporting Pupils With Medical Needs Policy

We use a range of local health professionals to train and assist school staff in dealing with medical conditions and administering medicine. Our Identified First Aid Lead is Jess Wilkes. Please contact the office if you have a specific question regarding this or any element of the Policy.
