Academies are publicly funded independent schools. They don’t have to follow the national curriculum and can set their own term times. They still have to follow the same rules on admissions, special educational needs, and exclusions as other state schools.
Academies get money directly from the government, not the local authority. They are run by an academy trust which employs the staff. Some academies have sponsors such as businesses, universities, other schools, faith groups, or voluntary groups. The sponsors are responsible for improving the performance of their schools.
SEND School Admissions
Students with additional needs and disabilities who do not have an Education, Health, and care Plan follow the same admissions process as children without additional needs.
Students with SEND who have an EHC Plan follow a different admissions process so that their placements are considered in advance of mainstream students being allocated placements.

The government has asked schools and academies to provide information about support for children with additional needs. School SEN Information Reports are intended to tell you the practical day-to-day approach taken within each individual school. They should be written in a way that is helpful, clear, and meaningful for parents. This help and advice article explains more about this duty - What is a school SEN information report?
