West End prides itself on being a caring and inclusive school. Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) or Physical Disabilities are supported according to whatever their individual needs have been assessed to require, via their Statement of SEN or their Individual Education Plan (IEP). This support can be through a variety of methods or interventions which can include things such as:
IEPs are updated termly with parental involvement.
The responsibility for making whole school SEN provision rests with school governing bodies and accordingly, there is a nominated SEN Governor who is currently Barbara Stevens. Her role is to liasie with Phil Cornall, the schools Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) and report upon this to the Full Governing Body termly.
In order that their needs can be met quickly, the early identification of children who may have SEN, is an important feature of our approach to meeting the needs of all of our children. Therefore if parents have any concerns of an SEN nature, they should contact Mr Cornall.
Lancashire County Council - SEND Surveys
Lancashire County Council is inviting all parents/carers and stakeholders that have experience of the EHCP process to complete surveys and have their say. The surveys can be found on the homepage of Lancashire's Local Offer: www.Lancashire.gov.uk/SEND or simply click on the links below:
Survey for parents/carers of CYP who have an EHCP
Survey for children and young people who have an EHCP
LCC SEND Service will use the results to monitor how they are doing and how they can make improvements. The information you give will also be used in a national report to help improve the way things are done for others across England. LCC will publish the survey findings and what they will be doing as a result of the findings on the Local Offer in autumn 2018.
Our Sensory Room
In an effort to meet all of our pupils' needs, we have installed a multi-sensory room in school, which has been fully funded by a grant obtained through the Extended Schools Service.
We are really excited about this addition to our provision and are offering the use of this room to any local schools with children who would benefit from working in a multi-sensory environment.
