Whingate Primary School

Name our new school motto!

How will the school staff support my child?


  • Your child’s needs will be met within the class, supported by a highly differentiated curriculum and high quality teaching, including lesson planning that takes account of every child’s needs. This is known as Quality First Teaching
  • The progress and specific needs of all children are reviewed regularly
  • The school offers a graduated response to your child’s needs. We have a number of highly specialised and trained staff as well as a range of resources and support to meet specific needs.
  • Your child’s needs may require small group, targeted teaching support and additional interventions for core curriculum subjects such as: English and Mathematics. These interventions will be carefully planned and evaluated to ensure your child makes progress.
  • The class teacher will develop a plan for your child with the SENCO by setting appropriate targets.
  • Where necessary, an individual programme of support may be used and progress monitored and evaluated termly.
  • The school reviews all children’s needs six times a year through pupil progress meetings where the Senior Leadership Team and class teachers meet to review your child’s support and progress.
  • Where necessary the school may seek support from outside agencies and services. This will be discussed with you before a referral made.
  • The governing body is responsible for ensuring that funding is used appropriately, and for monitoring teaching and accessibility. There is a designated SEN Governor, Mr Ian Stokes, who works with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that the needs of pupils with SEND are being met.
