SEND Provision at Whitefield
All children may, at some time, have special needs, including able pupils.
Whenever possible their needs are catered for by the child's Class Teacher with support from the Special Needs Support staff led by the SENCO.
If a Class Teacher becomes concerned about the progress being made by your child, they will discuss this with you and draw up an Individual Education Plan to help address your child's needs. Regular reviews help everybody to stay informed about progress and staff are at hand to discuss any concerns.
It can be essential that specialists, such as Educational Psychologists and Learning Support Service are brought in to help to identify exactly what the nature of a child's difficulty is. This helps teachers to adapt methods or resources to match children's needs.
