Special Educational Needs

At Westlands Primary School, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are fully aware of SEND Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, Health Professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.

The Four Broad Areas of SEND are:

  • Communication and interaction (C&I)

  • Cognition and learning (C&L)

  • Social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH)

  • Sensory and/or physical needs (S/PD)
