Our SEN Information Report – which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer – provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school.
The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated in September 2021.
At Witton-le-Wear Primary School, we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies, in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN. At Witton-le-Wear Primary School, we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
This SEN Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEN Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan which can be found in the School Policies section.
