How do we cater for SEND at Westwood?

Westwood Primary School utilises experienced staff, appropriate resources and innovative procedures to offer high quality provision that will meet the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) of the children that are part of our school community. The school makes reasonable adjustments for any disabled children; supports medical conditions and informs parents and carers if provision is made for the children while they are in our care. Westwood Primary School follows the SEND Code of Practice set out by the Department for Education and the Department for Health. The Code of Practice states the four broad areas of need that are to be planned for:

  • Communication and interaction
  • Cognition and learning
  • Social, emotional and mental health (including behavioural issues)
  • Sensory and/or physical needs.
