Withernsea Primary School is an inclusive school.
It is able to provide for the needs of nearly all pupils within a mainstream setting. Work in class is differentiated to meet the needs of the pupils. The school employs a number of Teaching Assistants who work in class helping pupils to access the curriculum.
The school follows the Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs.
On entry to the school pupils are assessed by their class teacher to identify any learning difficulties. The school has a well-equipped Support room.
Pupils on the Special Needs Register at school action plus or with a statement will have an Individual Education Plan, which is planned with them and their parents/carers. The Special Educational Needs Coordinator and class teacher work together to update these twice a year.
Pupils are assisted in meeting their targets by Teaching Assistants who work with them in class either individually or in a small group. Our provision map shows the extra activities pupils take part in
Some pupils with specific learning difficulties have a lesson a week with a qualified Special Needs Teacher, to work on phonic and other relevant skills.
Children with a Statement of Special Educational Need may have a weekly lesson and also the support of a Teaching Assistant in class, when appropriate.
Any parent who has concerns about their child's progress can make an appointment to see Miss J Ward, the Special Educational Needs Coordinator or leave a message for her to contact them.
The school welcomes partnership with parents.
