SEND and Inclusion at Wick CE Primary School

 

Welcome to the SEND and Inclusion section of our school website.

 

SENCO: Mrs A Barrett

Parent Link workers: Mrs J Wiltshire and Mrs B Kitchener

 

Inspiring and Achieving together

 

We support and value the abilities of all our pupils. It is our duty to provide equal opportunities for every person in our care in a safe and fully equipped learning environment, which caters to the needs of every child as an individual. The school is committed to ensuring that pupils with special educational needs can fulfil their potential and achieve optimal educational outcomes.

 

Local authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available to children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25, this is called the "Local Offer".

 

The South Gloucestershire Local offer can be found on the website, please click here

 

Below you can find information on Wick CE Primary school Local offer.

 

We believe that every teacher is a teacher of every child including those with SEN and we are committed to providing a high quality education for all children in our care. 

 

Should parents or carers wish to discuss their child's learning needs, we invite them to contact the class teacher, one of our Parent Link Advisors or Mrs Barrett (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator).
