Special Educational Needs
At Wolverley Sebright Primary Academy, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, Health Professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.
The following documents will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can support children. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact me:
Mrs. Shelley Reeves-Walters

Further SEND help and support during the Covid 19 pandemic
Nosy Crow have released a free information book explaining the coronavirus to children, illustrated by Gruffalo illustrator Axel Scheffler. The book answers key questions in simple language appropriate for 5 to 9 year olds but would be also appropriate for some older children and young people with SEND.
In accordance with legislation, a child with an Educational and Health Care Plan (EHCP) or Statement of special educational needs will be offered a place if Wolverley Sebright Primary Academy is named in the Statement.
