About Us


Some children and young people need something additional to or different from what is provided for the majority of children; this is special educational provision.

Special Educational Needs and Inclusion is always a priority at Western Primary School. All staff and the Governing Body are highly committed to inclusion and work hard to ensure that provision is made for those who need it and that all children are given equitable access to our setting.

Whilst many factors contribute to the range of difficulties experienced by some children, we believe that much can be done to overcome them by parents, teacher, support staff and pupils working together. Our Graduated Response Road Map offers a concise overview of the potential journey through school for a pupil with SEND.

Our approach to special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) aims to:

  • Identify the needs of pupils with SEND as early as possible.
  • Monitor the progress of all pupils in order to aid the identification of pupils with SEND.
  • Make appropriate provision to overcome all barriers to learning and ensure pupils with SEND have full access to the National Curriculum.
  • Work with parents to gain a better understanding of their child and involve them in all stages of their child’s education.
  • Work with, and in support of, outside agencies when the pupils’ needs cannot be met by the school alone.
  • Create a school environment where pupils feel safe to voice their opinions of their own needs.
  • Make sure our school fully implements national legislation and guidance regarding pupils with SEND

More information can be found on our SEND Policy and SEND Information Report.
