Special Educational Needs
“It has been a privilege to see our learners develop and progress through the different stages of their learning and I am committed to ensuring that they are given the necessary opportunities, support and guidance to enable them to achieve their potential.”
Claire Woodbridge, SENCO
Wootton Park School is a school in which the learning and teaching, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matter.
Regardless of age, ability or disability, all learners are entitled to a varied education and should be provided with the support and opportunities to enable them to become lifelong learners.
The approach to learners with special educational needs and disabilities is set within the context of the Code of Practice 2014 and the aims of Wootton Park School. It follows the guidance set out in part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014. Learners with special educational needs and/or disabilities are admitted via the usual LA procedures and via close liaison with the SENCo. The SENCo and LDD team liaise closely with partner schools and early years settings to ensure a smooth transition for learners to both the primary and secondary phase.
Wootton Park School recognises that learners may have a range of different needs and this guidance should be read in conjunction with the school’s SEND Policy, Dyslexia Policy and Accessibility Plan. Wootton Park School ensures that learners with physical disabilities are treated on equal terms with their peers and follows the principles of the Equality Act 2010 to implement all reasonable adjustments to ensure that the same opportunities are available to these learners as their peers.
