Wolverley CE Secondary School aims to be a fully inclusive school that provides a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum of the highest quality to all of our students.
Wherever possible, this is personalised in order for every student to achieve success. Appropriate support and intervention enables all students with additional educational needs to experience and enjoy positive achievement. We achieve this by taking into account the students’ varied life experiences and needs to ensure that all students are able to flourish both socially and academically.
By having ‘additional educational needs’ we mean that the child will have much greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age. Consequently, students with additional/special needs will have access to a supportive team of Learning Support Assistants who will:
- Support learning inside the mainstream classroom
- Support learning within The Learning Centre
- Supervise activities at break and lunch time in The Learning Centre
- Keep learning on track with individuals or small groups of students via specific and targeted interventions including: Social Communication, Language for Thinking and Rapid Reading, this is not an exhaustive list
As each student progresses through the school we believe that they should be given the best possible opportunity to realise their potential. In helping students to achieve this, the school is committed to ensuring that every student completes their studies with a range of qualifications and skills that provides them with a wide and varied choice for the future. The SEND annual report is intended to outline the ways in which we support our students who are identified as having a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND) to do this.
All Worcestershire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of students with SEND. We are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all students with SEND are catered for in a mainstream setting wherever possible and where families want this to happen. However, it is important to remember that provision may change and develop over time.
The information required to be included in the SEND Annual Report is stated in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 Schedule 1; information to be included in the SEN Report.
