Our School

SEND

Whitkirk Primary School (59)

At Whitkirk Primary School, we are committed to being fully inclusive, ensuring that all members of our school are treated fairly and equally.

The Whitkirk’s approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, SEND, shows our commitment to being fully inclusive. By working in partnership with children, families and partner agencies, we ensure that all children receive the support they need to access all aspects of school life. We respect each child as an individual and have high expectations and aspirations for all.

We are a mainstream primary school but we are also proud to work in partnership with John Jamieson East Specialist Inclusion Learning Centre (SILC) for children with complex physical difficulties and medical needs.

We are also partnered with Talking House, an independent speech and language therapy provider who work closely with our children with communication and speech needs, providing assessments, intervention plans and additional support.

In March 2014, the Government passed The Children and Families Act that made wide ranging reforms to services for all children and young people, and specifically for those with SEND. From September 2014 Local Authorities must publish information about what services for children with SEND are available and how families can access them. This is known as the ‘Local Offer’.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child and would like to speak with our SEND Co-ordinator then please do not hesitate to contact Mrs A Downes. Email: downesa@wps.rklt.co.uk Phone: 0113 260 6203
