Woodlands Primary Academy is fully inclusive and welcomes all children with a wide range of Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND).
We are a person centered school and as such ensure our children and their families are at the centre of everything we offer.
All children at Woodlands are supported to thrive and to achieve their potential, regardless of any SEND. Children identified as having a SEND have the same access to high quality teaching and engaging learning environments as all other children in school and, in addition, will have a support plan and one page profile which will outline their strengths and difficulties and ensure all staff in school are aware of the most appropriate teaching strategies to use to ensure the best progress possible is made.
All children at Woodlands access the curriculum at a level which challenges them to make progress across all areas of school life. We encourage and support children to strive to achieve their potential. All teachers at Woodlands are teachers of children with SEND and as such provide high quality teaching which takes account of the particular individual needs of children with SEND within their classrooms. Where a child’s SEND is supported through an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) support staff are deployed to provide targeted support and in some cases, alternative provision, to children.
Our Academy has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who is responsible for the management of provision and support for identified pupils with SEND.
Our SENCO: Miss Laura Humble
Aspirant SENCO: Miss Emma Stewart
