Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Information
SEN: Mrs A. Villien SENCO (All-Through)
As Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, I am privileged to work with an experienced and enthusiastic team including our specialist teacher and Learning Support Assistants. We work together to ensure that the needs of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities are met appropriately, with a view to each of these pupils achieving their full potential. This support takes many forms depending greatly on the individual needs of the pupil, but can include support within class, small group interventions and individual work on specific targets.
Mrs Villien email@example.com
In order for pupils who have special educational needs or disabilities to thrive and flourish at school, a positive working relationship with parents is also vital, as is close collaboration with professionals from other settings. So, if your child has special educational needs and you would like to discuss this with me, or you would like advice about aspects of special needs provision, please do contact me; I do believe it’s easier to deal with a query than to solve a problem.
Assistant SENCo (All-Through): Mrs C. Lunniss
I work closely with the SENCo and SEN team to help identify, plan and deliver support for our children with additional needs. We work carefully in partnership with parents and pupils to meet the needs and disabilities of the children throughout their time at Westgate School. I am passionate about children with additional needs having a key role in their own personal learning journey celebrating their achievements and planning their next steps.
I am lucky to work with an experienced hard working team who deliver support to our pupils in different ways depending on the most appropriate way to meet their needs, sometimes they support working in class, group interventions or individual work to support pupils set targets. Do please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns or questions.
