Special Educational Needs and Disability
(Ratified by Governors on Friday 31st March 2017)
|Woodside School promotes learning for life.
We are an inclusive, aspirational learning environment where children, families, staff, Governors and the wider community learn together in an atmosphere of co-operation and tolerance. As a community we promote self-discipline, understanding, empathy, co-operation, perseverance and independence.
All our children with SEND are fully included in all opportunities, both within and outside of the school day, alongside children who do not have SEND.
We encourage a culture of high standards, achievements and expectations. We aim to develop the full potential of every individual. Every child brings valuable experiences and strengths to our school. We build on these by offering a curriculum that is stimulating, accessible, challenging and differentiated to meet the needs of all children.
We provide an open, stimulating environment in which every child feels safe, valued and happy. We encourage parents and the wider community to take an active interest in the education of our children and to feel an ownership of their school. Our ethos forms the core of our planning and teaching.
Primarily, it is the responsibility of the class teacher to ensure the progress and development of the pupils in their class, supported by our Special Education Needs Team:
Charlotte Towne – SENCo (Early Years Phases 2,3 and Years 1 to 6)
Mark Derham – SEND Governor
