SEND School Offer
At Woodchurch CE Primary we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. We have high expectations for all children and see all of our children as 'unique' individuals and endeavour to enable each child to achieve their full potential, whatever their ability or specific needs by providing equal opportunities for all within our school.
In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey.
We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. Our curriculum promotes the development of the whole child as confident, resourceful and independent learners who are able to face the future with resilience and ingenuity.
All pupils in school receive quality first teaching. This means that a range of teaching and learning styles are used and that appropriate learning objectives are set for all children with a curriculum matched to their needs. All our classes are supported by teaching assistants and pupils are also offered additional one to one tuition, small group work or catch up programmes where needed. Through appropriate curricular provision, we respect and acknowledge that children:
- Have different educational and behavioural needs and aspirations
- Require different strategies for learning and participation
- Acquire, assimilate and communicate information at different rates
- Need a range of different teaching approaches and experiences
We want all children to feel that they are a fully inclusive and valued member of our school community.
Woodchurch CE is committed to working in partnership with parents/carers, external agencies and Wirral Local Authority to ensure the best outcomes for our children identified with special educational needs and disability.
The Bill is about reforming services for vulnerable children in order to give every child, whatever their start in life, an equal chance to make the best of themselves. It underpins wider reforms to ensure that all children and young people can succeed, no matter what their background. The Bill will reform the systems for:
- adoption and children in care
- aspects of the family justice system
- children and young people with special educational needs
- the Office of the Children's Commissioner for England
- statutory rights to leave and pay for parents and adopters time off work for ante-natal care
- the right to request flexible working
The Government is transforming the system for children and young people with special educational needs disability (SEND), including those who are disabled, so that services consistently support the best outcomes for them. The Bill will extend the SEND system from birth to twenty five giving children, young people and their parents/carers greater control and choice in decisions and ensuring needs are properly met.
- improving cooperation between all the services that support children and their families and particularly requiring local authorities and health authorities to work together;
- requiring local authorities to involve children, young people and parents in reviewing and developing provision for those with special educational needs and to publish a 'local offer' of support.
What is the Local Offer?
The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. The offer will include provision from birth to twenty five, across education, health and social care and should be developed in conjunction with children and young people, parents and carers, and local services, including schools, colleges, health and social care agencies.
