SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disability)
We are committed to providing all children, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, with a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum which is fully accessible and ensures they are fully included in all aspects of school life and feel equally valued and fully part of the school community. In doing so, The Whartons Primary School has implemented the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice.
Please see our school policy for SEND as well as our SEND information report for further information about how we will help your child to succeed everyday in school life and beyond.
We have also included some useful links for further information and guidance. Please do not hesitate to contact our school SENCO to discuss any concerns you may have, or if you would like any additional support and guidance.
The Local Offer
At The Whartons Primary School we celebrate the individuality of all our pupils and aim to provide high quality education that meets the needs of every child.
The new SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Local Offer will provide information for children, young people and their parents/carers in a single place, helping them to understand what services they and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. This was introduced as part of the Children and Families Bill and became law in 2014.
The aim of the local offer is to improve choice and transparency for families about the services they use. It will also be an important tool for professionals to use, as it will allow them to understand the full range of services and provision in the local area. By setting this information out in one place, this will also help the joint commissioning of services for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
