SEND at Woodstock

Ms Susannah Greaves is our SEND Coordinator. If you have any questions or concerns linked to special education needs, she can be contacted via the school office on 0116 2355825.

We value the ability and success of all students. We are all dedicated to providing the best possible environment for learning.

Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.

- Rita Pierson, Educator

Woodstock Primary Academy provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all children including those with special educational needs or disabilities. We are committed to inclusion for all children in all areas of the curriculum. Individual needs will be met through the highest quality of education for all pupils and the efficient and effective use of resources.

For all children with SEND; support and advice are available from the school SENCO. The school seeks advice and guidance from other professionals and involves them in the planning and delivery of support for pupils with SEND. 

To support students with SEND and in particular those students with an EHCP (Education Health Care Plan):

  • There are regular meetings with parents. Information from these meetings and specialist advice is shared with staff in order to prompt all staff on how to support each child with SEND on an individual basis.
  • Teaching assistant support will be given to pupils to address needs if required.
  • Auditory and/or visual requirements will be provided for as required e.e., visual timetables, now and then boards and task planners as well as the class visualiser and adapted seating in class.
