At Watlington, we welcome each child into our school community as a valued member and acknowledge that every individual has particular qualities and needs.
A person has Special Educational Needs if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.
Pupils may have different types of SEND
1. Communication and interaction (eg. speech and language difficulties, ASD)
2. Cognition and learning (general or specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia)
3. Social, emotional and mental health (eg. ADHD, attachment disorders)
4. Physical and sensory.( eg. hearing , visual impairment, dyspraxia, hyper-sensitivity)
At Watlington we aim to identify pupils with SEND and ensure that their needs are met so that that they make the best possible progress, achieve their full potential and join in with all the activities of the school. We aim to work in partnership with pupils and parents at all times.
Day to day support for all pupils is directed by the class teacher with additional support from Teaching Assistants.
Should you have any further queries please feel free to approach your child's class teacher or Mrs Doran (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) who can be contacted via the school office.
