Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities make good progress across a range of subjects. They benefit from effective additional support in lessons and, where required, with individual support for specific areas of learning. Ofsted – July 2016
On this page you will find information about how we support our pupils with special educational needs and Disabilities (SEND).
Our SEND Coordinator is Mrs Oselton. She can always be contacted through the school’s office by telephone or email. If you have any questions regarding our provision or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact her.
Mr Stephen Parker and Mr Massingham are our named Governors for SEND.
This year we are very proud to have opened our new Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) hub, Cherry Blossom House. This is for children who have been identified with SEMH needs which prevent them from accessing a mainstream school full time. Places are allocated to our provision by the Local Authority, after discussions between a child's current school, ourselves and Special Educational Needs Assessment and Commissioning Service (SENA). Our hub of learning is a reflection on our inclusive approach Woodcote. Over time, and when the children are ready, they are integrated into our mainstream school.
Below you will find our SEND Policy, detailing how we provide an inclusive learning environment for all of our pupils. Also you will find our SEND Information Report, which we produce to provide parents and our Local Authority with a summary of our special needs provision.
