WestminsterCommunity Primary School

SEN Information

We are committed to a broad and balanced curriculum for all our pupils and know that the trips, visits, and visitors that our children engage with enrich their learning. Feedback tells us that this is a strength of our school.

Mrs Davenport our SENDCO (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator) works to ensure the inclusion of all pupils. She is available to meet you by appointment, although you can of course always discuss any concerns or worries with your child’s class teacher.

Mrs Phillips, our Mental Health Lead, supports our children through her role as Learning Mentor and ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant). You can make an appointment to talk to her via the school office.

We all ensure that the school provides the best support possible for children identified as having special needs. We discuss support plans with parents/carers and provide regular feedback on progress. External agencies may need to be consulted on some occasions, but only with prior consent from parents/carers.
