SEND & Inclusion

At Winwick CE Primary School, through our vision 'In God's Love, aspire and achieve to be the best', we ensure that all children are supported and encouraged to flourish. Our staff team are committed to providing a high quality education for all of its pupils. We believe that all children have a common entitlement to a broad, balanced academic and social curriculum. All children should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe. Inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background. We will endeavour to respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs. 
At Winwick C E Primary School we aim to identify and meet the needs of children who experience barriers to their learning which may relate to sensory or physical impairment, learning difficulties, social or emotional development, or may relate to factors in their environment; including the learning environment they experience in school. We aim to identify these needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning contexts which enable every child to achieve to his or her full potential.
Please see our SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and Inclusion Policy for information.

Blind football
During Y6's PE today, they played blind football. This involved them having to be blindfolded whilst listening for ball which contained a bell. Due to their sight being restricted, blind football required them to rely on their other senses - hearing and touch - to enable them to remain safe and to allow them to fully participate in the sport. 
This was quite tricky at times but they loved trying this out. 
During this session, the team will be joined by Sally Bristow, Early Help SEND Team Manager. Sally will be available to answer any questions you may have about Early Help services. This is also a general catch up session, so parents and carers are invited to come along.
