Special Educational Needs and Disabilities - SEND

At Warter C.E. Primary School, we make sure that every child makes good or better progress from their starting points. We monitor progress really carefully during our teaching and adjust what we do to help every learner.

To make sure that every child is given the right support and challenge, all teaching staff regularly share information with Mrs Helen Houghton, SENDCO,  discussing every child in depth. This ensures that we quickly identify children who may need a bit of extra help to keep up or longer-term support to achieve their potential. This might mean extra focused help in the classroom; a short term additional ‘booster’ programme in a small group or individually; or more intensive support through setting up an Educational Health Care Plan. We keep parents and carers fully informed at every stage and, where longer term support is needed, they are invited to meetings every term to discuss progress and next steps.

Our SENDCO (the teacher with responsibility for Special Educational Needs) is Mrs Helen Houghton.

The governor responsible for monitoring Special Educational Needs and provision is Claire Huckfield.

On this page of our website, we publish information about how we support children at Warter with SEND and the details of the local offer that parents and families should expect to receive from all schools in the authority.
