Special Educational Needs, Disabilities and Inclusion
At Walderslade Primary School we aim to enable every pupil to realise their full potential with education equality. Our Special Educations Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy aims to help all children develop the skills, knowledge and personal capabilities needed for life and work, which will enable them to make the best possible contribution to society.
Inclusion is a process of identifying, understanding and breaking down barriers to learning and belonging, ensuring every child's needs are met at a level which is appropriate to them. All children are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they achieve their best.
Miss Glover is our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator at Walderslade, responsible for coordinating all the support for children who have additional needs. Seh can support pupils through access to local support teams and can also access external help. Miss Glover is available to meet and discuss your child's needs and the rpovision within the school. She currently works three days a week - Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Mrs Bridger is our Famliy Liaison Officer and works closely with our children and their families throughout the school regarding their pastoral needs. She is able to sign post families in need of additional support, including referrals, bereavement, School Health, Small Steps and Early Help.
If you have any further questions regarding SEND or Inclusion, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Glover via the school office or via email using firstname.lastname@example.org and Mrs Bridger via the office (or often found on the school gate in the morning!)
Arrangements for handling complaints from parents of children with special educational needs and the support provided by the school can be found in our SEN Information report. Please click this link to read our SEND Policy and SEN Information Report
