SEND And Additional Needs

Student studying online

Pearson Online Academy UK Global is an inclusive school which is committed to equal opportunities for all.

We warmly welcome all students, including those who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We will make reasonable adjustments for those students who have SEND or additional learning needs and are committed to understanding and meeting those needs during their time at Pearson Online Academy UK Global.

Online schooling can provide a welcoming environment for students with SEND, as students study from the comfort of their own home with fewer distractions than a traditional classroom. Self-study lessons can be reviewed at a time and pace determined by the student, and all LiveLesson sessions are recorded and can be watched back if required.

Our Success Coaches are SEND specialists who can provide support to students with a wide range of needs. The nature of the support will depend on the exact needs and will be determined in consultation with the student and their parents. This may include individual lessons, group study skills lessons or accommodations made by teachers in the LiveLesson sessions. As with a traditional school, we are able to apply for accommodations to be made by Pearson Edexcel which reflect the student’s normal way of working when students take their International GCSE, AS and A Level examinations.
