Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Wheelock Primary School we believe that all children must be given the opportunity to succeed.  We quickly identify individual needs and use our best endeavours to implement appropriate additional support delivered by highly skilled staff.  Our inclusive approach enables all children to access the curriculum with enjoyment and purpose.

Families and children are instrumental in the development of school focus plans.  We seek further advice from outside professionals such as Speech and Language Therapists, Educational Psychologists, The Autism Team, Occupational Therapists etc.  Teachers and parents are then able to work together to follow the advice with clear expected outcome.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is often referred to as SEN or SEND and is coordinated by the school's SENCOs (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinators).

On 1st September 2014, the Children and Families Act 2014 introduced a new framework for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) representing the biggest changes in SEN for 30 years.

All Local Authorities are required to publish information on ‘the Local Offer’ about all SEND services they provide, along with details of any eligibility for specialist services.

Please read our Local Offer of Provision to find out more about the ways in which we meet the needs of our pupils with Special Educational Needs.
