Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

At The Willows we expect all of our pupils to make good progress due to high quality teaching at school and support at home. Each term we look at every pupil’s assessment results to see if there are areas where a pupil seems to have a barrier to learning. Sharon Morris, our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator or SENCo, works closely with school staff, parents/carers, pupils and other agencies to find out if there are difficulties due to:

• communication and interaction
• cognition and learning
• social, mental and emotional health
• or sensory and physical needs.


Sharon has been our SENCo since September 2010 and has completed the National SENCo Award. Staff members have regular training in order to meet the needs of our pupils. We know that each pupil is unique. Only by working with and listening to parents/ carers and pupils can we enable every pupil to reach their full potential socially, emotionally and academically during their time at The Willows. Specialist support is available to us from agencies such as Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, County Inclusive Resource and the Behaviour Support Service.


As a parent/carer you will have a number of questions about what our school can provide to help each pupil. We are currently updating our SEN Policy with the support of school staff, parents/ carers and pupils.
