The Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Policy and Information Report provides details about what we offer and how we support children with Special Educationl Needs and Disabiliites at Whinfield Primary School. It was reviewed and updated in June 2021. This report is a valuable source of information in relation to our SEND offer.
This report should be read alongside the school’ Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan which can be found in the School Policies section.
We welcome all children, regardless of need, into our school. 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 through accessing quality first teaching, and further support through small group intervention when required. 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.
