Havelock Academy

Our goal is to provide excellent opportunities in an open, positive and purposeful climate for all to achieve excellence, become lifelong learners and responsible, successful, well rounded citizens.


Additional Challenge

At Havelock we take pride in our ability to cater for the needs of all our students.

Some of our students may have particular talents in the creative and performing arts while others excel in sporting activities. Other students are identified as having outstanding academic potential and some may show exceptional leadership, organizational or decision-making skills.

For further information on Special Educational Needs and our Local Offer available to download in the documents panel on this page.

These students have the ability to develop various skills significantly ahead of their peers. We aim to identify these students quickly and to ensure their needs are met beyond the usual differentiation provided by their teachers.

SEN and Learning Support

A small number of children experience difficulties in coping with education.

These difficulties can present themselves in aspects of the child's progress, attendance, behaviour and their emotional well-being.

Learning Mentors contribute specifically to the development of students from within each Faculty and a core team of experienced Teaching Assistants support students with a range of special educational needs.

Staff ensure that students experience a smooth transition from primary education and a wide range of strategies can be used to support this including the use of a Nurture Room, ‘S-Cape’ and the Alternative Provision based within the Jaguar House Base.
