Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

At Hill View Junior Academy, we are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum accessible to all children, irrespective of need or abilities in line with legislation in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. We value the contribution each and every child makes to our school community and our inclusive ethos aims to ensure that all children can access a broad and balanced curriculum so that each child reaches their full potential academically, socially and emotionally. Our school is fully accessible and provides a warm and welcoming learning environment.


The SEND team is made up of:

  • SENDCo – Miss A Earl
  • SEND Support Teacher – Miss K Earnshaw


The SEND team and school maintain close working relationships with children, staff, parents and other agencies, which include:

  • Sunderland Together for Children

  • Speech and Language Therapy

  • Autism Outreach team

  • Physiotherapy

  • Educational Psychologist

  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

  • Children and Young People Service (CYPS)

  • Mental Health Support Team (MHST).


We work hard to enable every child to achieve the very best they can at our school. However, if you feel your child needs additional help or support, we encourage you to speak to your child's class teacher of contact Mrs. A. Earl (SENDCO) on shvaearl@hvi.org.uk
