Special Curriculum Provision
Woodside Junior School treats all children as individuals and differentiates learning experiences accordingly. In line with the 2002 Code of Practice (on Special Educational Needs), early identification of children with any form of learning or behavioural concern is sought. In consultation with parents and other agencies (e.g. The Area Learning Support Team, The Emotional and Behavioural Department or County's Psychological Service) programmes are designed to give maximum support to each child.
The partnership between parents of children with special educational needs and teachers is viewed as having a crucial bearing on a child's progress. This partnership approach, is encouraged at Woodside Junior School and parents are invited to meet class teachers to discuss any issues related to a child's well-being and educational progress regularly.
The Headteacher and Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) welcome the opportunity to discuss concerns with parents.
