Whitgreave Primary School Special Educational Need Information Report and Policy 2023 -2024
Welcome to our SEND Information Report and Policy which is part of the Wolverhampton Local Offer for learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
Admission Arrangements for Pupils with SEN or Disabilities
We endeavour to be a fully inclusive school.
Our Admission Policy is based upon the agreed Wolverhampton LA Admissions Policy. Normal admission arrangements will be followed for pupils with ‘SEN or Disabilities’
All our children will be treated according to their needs in line with the school policy for ‘Equal Opportunities and Racial Equality’. No pupil will be denied admission because of gender, creed, race, physical ability or academic achievement.
We will take all steps possible to provide effective educational provision. Where a pupil has a particular need e.g. wheelchair access, the Governors will ensure that reasonable adjustments are made for that pupil’s need to be fully met. Our buildings have been adapted internally and externally, wherever possible to make them accessible for all. Internally, the school is well signposted and the fire escapes are suitable for all (we do utilise PEEPs’ where necessary). Our classrooms are carpeted for hearing impaired pupils/staff/visitors). We have a number of accessible toilets, situated around the buildings. Our curriculum and the resources that we provide are designed with pupils of all abilities being able to easily access.
If a pupil is transferring into the school with an EHCP or has been in receipt of extra support from LA centrally funded resources in their previous setting, continuation of this support will be negotiated with the appropriate member of the LA, to ensure that needs can be met.
At Whitgreave, we work closely with the Outreach Team to loan equipment to support the needs of learners. Further to this, we are given regular training to enable to fully support pupils with a range of needs.
