Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We are a fully inclusive school. We aim to ensure all pupils achieve their potential, personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum, (Regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs).

If you would like to discuss your child’s needs please contact:

Elizabeth Pawson (Assistant Principal for Inclusion) – elizabeth.pawson@westminsterschool.co.uk

Rosie Walker (Assistant SENco KS2) – rosie.walker@westminsterschool.co.uk

Juliette Rawnsley (Assistant SENco KS1) – juliette.rawnsley@westminsterschool.co.uk

Children may have special educational needs that require additional support when progress has slowed or stopped. We implement a graduated approach based on the guidance from Bradford Metropolitan District Council’s Children’s Services for SEN. This is based on an Assess-Plan-Do-Review 3 range structure.
