Academy ‘loses’ 194 special needs pupils

A chain of academies is facing an investigation after the number of pupils with special educational needs at one of its schools fell by 194 in a year.

The Department for Education said it was “concerned” after an analysis by The Times uncovered the reduction at the Great Yarmouth Charter Academy.

The academy said that some children with special educational needs (SEN) had left while others had been reclassified as not needing extra support after the Inspiration Trust, a Norwich based chain of 13 academies, took over the school in September 2017.
