As an inclusive school we do not seek to closely define the special educational needs for which we will make provision.

Before admitting pupils with special educational needs, we would expect to have informative discussions with both the pupil’s family and the local authority to ascertain the suitability of our provision. We understand that it is initially our responsibility to make provision for a pupil with special educational needs through the school’s devolved SEN budget. We can do this by altering the children’s physical environment and / or differentiating to meet the child’s specific learning needs.

A message from our SENCO link governor:

The difficulties faced by families and staff at school during the national pandemic are distressing for all. But St. Werburgh’s has continued to have an open door and an open heart for SEND children in need throughout. Staff are working exceptionally hard to support, through new and exciting technology.

Whilst education may look very different during lockdown, every effort possible is being made to ensure all children, including SEND children, have access to a wide range of learning opportunities, as we all try to adapt to this ever-changing situation. As SEND Link Governor everyone is in my thoughts and prayers. As we strive to be like, and to do as Jesus would do, we can make a good start by being kind.
