Aegir - A Specialist Academy

Aegir- A Specialist Special Academy admits pupils from Gainsborough, Lincoln, Market Rasen, North Lincolnshire and the Bassetlaw areas of Nottinghamshire and North East Lincolnshire (we also admit learners from the rest of England and are happy to discuss placements with Local Authorities directly).

The Academy is housed in a specially designed building and has, as you would expect, specialist facilities and provision within.  These include specialist hygiene suites, specialist sensory zones, physiotherapy areas, rebound therapy bases, music therapy studios, outside areas for the visually impaired and routes throughout the academy for the novice to very experienced motorised wheelchair navigator.

The Academy provides educational and care provision for pupils with a wide range and type of Special Educational Need and/or Disability. Nearly all pupils have an Education, Health and Care Plan.

We have a team of highly specialised teachers and support assistants which provides a high staff to pupil ratio and a high level of effective and evidence based therapeutic support including speech and language, physiotherapy, specialist dyslexia type teaching and specialist teaching for pupils with social and communication difficulties (Autism).

The Academy is able to help address the educational, medical and psychological needs of learners who experience general learning difficulties with remembering things, writing, reading and spelling and numerical operations and concepts. Some of our pupils have severe learning difficulties and receive a bespoke specialised curriculum. The majority of our pupils have social and communication difficulties related to their autistic spectrum level of need or medical difficulty and diagnosis.

Many of our learners have dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, and other motor co-ordination difficulties, or medical needs such as epilepsy and autism.

The Academy has been awarded a number of National and Regional awards including awards for its autism teaching and support, AIMS4Lincs, winner of the Autism Education Trust Service Provider award for the last six years. Our inclusion and community work, International Values and Educational Awards, Awards for Healthy Schools and Excellent Food and Nutrition Gold Awards.

The Academy leadership team are leaders who are recognised nationally and locally in terms of their combined expertise.

The Academy is a happy, healthy and safe place for pupils to learn, achieve and attain educational experiences both within and outside the academy.

We provide a range of specialist services to others including psychological advice and assessment, outreach support to schools relating to social and communication issues, and bespoke school improvement advice and consultancy, portage provision on behalf of the Local Authority and support to local schools relating to developing Autism friendly schools and promoting understanding for teaching, support staff and governors.

Within its team, the Academy has experts in educational psychology; school improvement; leadership; special educational needs and disabilities training; business management; ICT; parental liaison and mediation; safeguarding and child protection; inspection and review; autism; and dyslexia.  All the above services are subject to a fee with the exception of the current outreach support to schools as part of the social and communication outreach team.

Aegir is a good and improving academy and we pride ourselves on putting the children first in all we do.

Parents and Carers and Professionals are always welcome to contact us or come in to visit us; if we can help, we gladly will.  If we can't, we assure you that one of our network of school leaders will be able to help you.

We have effective and positive relationships with our partner Local Authorities, social care teams, health teams and our own psychologists.  Our teacher and support assistant skills are regularly updated and we promote active continuing professional development that is relevant and evidence based.

The Post-16 Centre is an outstanding provision for learners who need time to gain qualifications and experiences to prepare them for the life of work or further study. Outcomes are outstanding and our success rate is second to none.
