    Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

    We are committed to the early identification of Special Educational Needs (SEN). Woodberry Down Primary School adopts a graduated response to meeting SEN and Disability (SEND) in line with the SEN Code of Practise 0-25, 2014. All children throughout the school are monitored regularly to ensure they continue to access the curriculum successfully and to help early identification of need.

    To help us identify, assess and provide appropriate provision we have access to the following services:

    • Educational Psychologists - More Information
    • Specialist teachers - More Information
    • Speech and Language Therapists - More Information
    • Occupational Therapists - More Information
    • Physiotherapists - More Information
    • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) - More Information
    • In-house Learning Mentor Support - More Information

    We involve parents and carers in target setting and inform them of their child's progress throughout the academic year. Parents and carers are consistently involved and supported in order to help children reach their targets.

    Woodberry Down is fully inclusive, and we strive to ensure SEN pupils have full access to our broad curriculum and extracurricular activities.
