Our SEND Department

SEND and the Curriculum

At Wyborne Primary School, the curriculum is delivered through high quality teaching and is planned to meet the needs of all our pupils providing them customised access where necessary.

We have recently been awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark (2020-2023) and we are proud to say we are an inclusive school. At Wyborne, we ensure that all staff in the school are able to identify and provide for those pupils who have special educational needs or disabilities. Some pupils will need something additional to, and different from, what is provided for the majority of pupils; this is special educational provision, and we ensure that provision is made for those who need it. The school’s SEND policy directs the work of all staff working at Wyborne, ensuring all students are fully included in the life of the school and are supported to achieve their potential.

The school makes full use of agencies, which can help to ensure that every child’s needs are met. These agencies include support guidance and advice from Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Educational Psychologists, STEPS Literacy Service, Autistic Spectrum Disorder Outreach and the Visual and Hearing Impairment Outreach Team.

The mental health and well-being of every child is a key priority for our school. All staff are trained to provide a high standard of pastoral support and are available to discuss issues and concerns.

For further information on our provision for pupils with additional needs, please see the SEND Policy and School Local Offer.
