Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Walkwood Church of England Middle School is a fully inclusive mainstream school. All pupils are valued equally, regardless of where their abilities lie. All pupils are entitled to have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, which is differentiated to meet individual needs. A rich, broad and balanced curriculum is offered across the four years and two key stages.  The planning through the four years is strong, both within each subject and across different subjects.  This builds subject partnerships of ideas or concepts, which support pupils’ learning. 
Pupils of all ages and all abilities will: 
  • Be treated as individuals where their individual needs, interests and aptitudes are recognised.  
  • Be entitled to have an emerging or evident special educational need identified and assessed. 
  • Be provided with opportunities for continued growth and development so that they can increase their self-esteem and become confident.  
  • Receive a curriculum which allows them to make informed choices as they progress beyond the school.  
  • Be encouraged to learn through a range of enjoyable and stimulating experiences in an atmosphere where pupils feel valued, encouraged and safe.  
  • Learn to take an increasing responsibility for their own learning and actions so that they will be equipped to deal with life after school.
  • Be encouraged to see education as a life-long process to the benefit of all aspects of their life.

More Able

Some pupils have particular strengths, which may be sporting, artistic, musical or academic. These tend to be drawn out in particular lessons where there is a ‘challenge’ activity to extend learning. There are also further and specific opportunities during pupils’ time at Walkwood, such as the school production, taking part in a sports team or being part of the orchestra.
