The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated in June 2020.
This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan which can be found in the School Policies section.
We have an open door policy and parents are welcome to request a meeting at any time. We strongly believe that all children should be provided with the opportunities to allow them to achieve their full potential. Our staff will strive to identify and remove barriers to learning whilst creating an environment in which every child has the very best experiences that education can offer.
Carefully planned provision, including short term interventions implemented by our staff together with the expertise from the agencies with whom we work can help ensure all children can access the curriculum that would not otherwise have been accessible to them. We have an extensive range of resources and interventions available which are closely matched to the needs of the children. Grouping arrangements within class take into account the needs and abilities of each child to ensure learning opportunities are maximised.
The Governing Body is confident that every child with additional educational needs at Whinfield will access appropriate intervention and support designed to meet their individual needs. The Governing Body are informed of any changes to policy which may affect the education of children identified as having additional needs. The Governor for Special Educational Needs is Mrs Waite.
