Whaplode Church of England Primary School - Inspire, Believe, Achieve

Healthy Schools

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Whaplode Church of England Primary School values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils, and is committed to providing each pupil with the best possible support to ensure they reach their full potential. We recognise that many pupils will have special needs at some time during their school life. 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, teachers, support staff and pupils working together.

Objectives of Whaplode Church of England Primary School SEND Provision

Ensure all pupils have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum

The main methods of provision made by the school are flexible and are tailored to the needs of the pupils as much as possible.  Staff are experienced in working within areas of SEND and are committed to developing children personally and academically.  Examples of SEND provision include:

Whaplode Church of England Primary School firmly believes in developing a strong partnership with parents/carers and that this will enable children and young people with SEND to achieve their potential.  The school recognises that parents/carers have a unique overview of their child's needs and how best to support them, and that this gives them a key role in the partnership.  Parents/carers hold key information and have a critical role to play in their children's education.

As of September 2014, all schools will be required to publish details of its school offer, detailing support for pupils with special educational needs and/or a disability to compliment the Lincolnshire LA Local Offer.  Below are details of the current school offer at Whaplode Church of England Primary School and the Local Offer for Lincolnshire.
