At Whitehall Primary School, we work hard to meet the needs of all children attending the school. The school has a wealth of expertise it can call upon to help make learning accessible to all. In school, this includes the Inclusion Manager, Family Support Officer, Learning Mentor, Teachers of the Deaf and Specialist Teaching Assistants. The many outside agencies that the school calls upon for help and advice are detailed in a Provision Map which is available from the school office.
Making the curriculum inclusive may entail changes in the way that lessons are delivered, resources used or support staff deployed. It may also necessitate using a variety of teaching strategies or grouping children in particular ways. Specific programmes of intervention may require the involvement of specialists.
At all times, we will want to involve parents in their child’s educational provision and will work in partnership to help your child get the best from their time at the school.
The school aims to challenge prejudice and enable pupils to explore issues surrounding visible and hidden disabilities and differences, via its PHSE curriculum.
ACCESS FOR PUPILS WITH PHYSICAL DISABILITIES
The school works alongside outside agencies to provide resources to help physically disabled pupils gain access to the school curriculum.
