SEND Provision at Werneth School

Werneth is an inclusive school and prides itself on its multi -layered support systems and personalised approach towards each student’s needs. We encourage open lines of communication to our parents, Werneth staff and external agencies.

Werneth School is focused on raising the aspirations and expectations of all students with SEND and we provide a focus on outcomes for children and young people and not just hours of provision/support. At Werneth School, we make it our priority to not only identify and assess the needs of our SEND students, but to also consider the needs of the vulnerable children cohort which will not just include the special educational needs of the student, but their general needs too. This may include looking at their attendance and punctuality, health and welfare, EAL, being in receipt of the Pupil Premium grant, being a Looked After Child, being a child of serviceman/woman, extra-curricular activities etc.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students. We strongly believe that all students have the right to feel safe and to be protected from  physical, sexual or emotional abuse and neglect. We aim to work well in partnership with parents/carers and any other appropriate agencies to promote the welfare of our students. Every teacher is a teacher of every child or young person including those with SEND. We expect Quality First Teaching to be embedded throughout the school.
