Special Education Needs and Disability

Woodbury Primary School is an inclusive school.  We have high expectations for all our children and provide the very best education we can for all, irrespective of their educational or medical needs. 

Special Educational Needs and Disability(SEND) provision at Woodbury is flexible and varied in order that all our children have equal opportunities to access the full curriculum, with reasonable modification or support. This may take the form of adapting the learning environment, providing specific resources or a learning support assistant working with a child in class or for individual or small group intervention work.  

We aim to work closely with parents to ensure the best provision for our children with SEN. We have an 'open door' policy so parents can share any concerns and regular meetings are held with the class teacher to review progress.  

We also work with outside agencies and therapists to acquire extra support for children who have specific needs.  As a staff we regularly undertake ongoing professional development to enable us to meet the needs of our children. 

Miss Pyle, our Deputy Head Teacher, is responsible for coordinating SEND or medical conditions. Our Governor with responsibility for SEND is Mrs Wendy Spicer.

The Children and Families bill became enacted in 2014. This required Local Authorities and schools to publish and review services available for children and young people with SEN aged 0-25.  This is the Local Offer and it provides a single point of access to clear and comprehensive information about services and provision that is available for children and young people who have a special educational need and/or disability (SEND).  Please see the link below. 

For more detail about how we support our children with SEN, please see the report below. Our policies for SEND as well as Disability and Equality are available on the policy page. Alternatively, Miss Pyle would be very pleased to answer anything you would like to know about how we support children with SEND or any medical condition.
