School SEND ethos

Whinstone Primary is a very inclusive school – we believe that every child deserves the best possible education and try very hard to ensure that we cater for all children’s needs. Providing a high quality education for children with SEND is at the heart of our school’s ethos of inclusion.

There are four areas of SEND, these are:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
  • Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties


Our School SENCO is Miss Amanda McNaughton 

Our governor with responsibility of SEND is Mrs Brenda Mann

In June 2014 the new SEN Code of Practice was released and our school is making every effort to ensure that we are compliant with this new legislature.

You will find a great deal of information regarding the school’s approach to supporting children with SEND in the Local Offer and school SEN Information Report below.

The purpose of the SEN Information Report is to inform parents and carers about:

  • how we support their children with special educational needs in all aspects of school life and remove barriers to achievement;
  • how we work in close partnership with parents/carers and children;
  • how we make effective provision for all of our children with special educational needs and disabilities – SEN
