At West Hill we provide an environment that enables all children to learn and progress to the best of their ability, we recognise that some children have special needs. We have clear structures in place for the identification of such needs, which is in line with the Code of Practice. When concerns are raised, we work in close liaison with parents to develop clear programmes to meet the needs of the child. Where appropriate, we use the expertise of other professionals to support children with special educational needs.
This is the West Hill Information report in line with the new Code of Practice 2014.
SEN Information Report
The policy below has been reviewed in line with the New SEN Code of Practice 2014
We have a teacher, Sue March and teaching assistant Angela Allum, who support those pupils who are new to English both in the classroom and out of the classroom in small groups. The school assesses these children within the first two weeks of their arrival in school. The school meets with new parents and a plan is made of how to support children best in their learning.
