Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Middlestown, children are at the heart of everything we do and we always strive to ensure that all children feel included.  We work hard to identify children with additional needs and ensure that they have the best care in place to meet their needs.  This is achieved through a range of strategies.

If you want to find out more about what we can do for your child, please read our Local Offer below.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
