Whitelands Academy will take pride in its ability to offer and successfully deliver a full curriculum that is inclusive to all children, irrespective of need.
We will have an SEN team in place that works very closely with all of the teaching staff and, as a result, our school will be able to support children with a wide range of academic, physical, and social needs. This may take the form of classroom-based support or withdrawn support, often in small group or one-to-one sessions, using resources from within the school and from the support services within the authority.
The school will maintain very close working relationships with children, staff, parents, and other agencies. Indeed, partnership with parents is of the utmost importance. We will encourage parents to discuss progress regularly with class teachers and with our special educational needs coordinator.
The school will take steps to ensure that all children are treated equally. As a result, we will be suitably equipped to deal with a wide range of individual needs. The school and the governing body will undertake regular reviews of its provision for children with special needs and ensure that its staff are well prepared and trained.
