Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) / Learning Support

Special Educational Needs, or SEND is a term used to describe pupils who have needs which are over and above those that can be met by quality first classroom teaching. Although the needs of children often cross more than one 'area of need', the four main categories are; Communication and Interaction, Cognitive and Learning; Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties and Sensory and/or Physical needs. A child's needs may be identified before a child has started school, or it may be identified at a specific time in their education. Furthermore, it may be for a short period of time or throughout a child's education. 

At Wescott Infant School we welcome everybody into our community and celebrate our diversity. We ensure that all children have access to learning at their level, which is tailored to meet their indivdual needs. We provide positive learning experiences and enable all children to access all aspects of school life through engaging and developing skills and knowledge, for them to succeed and reach their potential. 

Staff at Wescott have a wealth of experience in the field of SEND and benefit from a specialist ASD resource. There are a range of specific interventions and support programmes that are used to meet the differing needs of pupils where there progress is regularly tracked and evaluated. 

If you would like to contact the SENCo at Wescott Infant School, Mrs Robinson, please contact via the school office on 0118 978 6313 or via email senco@wescott.wokingham.sch.uk


What is the Local Offer?

As part of the changes within the Children and Families Bill, local authorities are required to develop a 'Local Offer', which will provide information for children, young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their parents/carers in a single place, helping them to understand what services they and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. 

The local offer for Wescott Infant School can be found here. It provides information on what services children, young people and their families can expect from the school. Knowing what is out there gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for your child.


We know that all parents want the best for their child and we will always seek to resolve any concerns quickly. The school welcomes feedback so where a parent has a concern about the provision being made, they should contact the class teacher in the first instance. If this does not resolve the situation, then please contact the SENC0, Mrs Robinson (senco@wescott.wokingham.sch.uk) and/or the Headteacher Mrs Holding via the school office (admin@wescott.wokingham.sch.uk). 

If the complaint is still not successfully resolved, please refer to the Complaints Policy on the school website.
