SEND Support at Westrop Primary and nursery school
At Westrop we believe and value each of our children as unique and individual, we believe that they all flourish in their own time with the right support and nurture. Children who are identified to have additional needs are supported with bespoke packages of support and intervention in order to allow them to reach their full potential.
Our school’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Mrs Tara Jeynes who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mrs Jeynes also holds regular drop in sessions where you can discuss your child's needs and celebrate their successes.
We are proud to be a Dyslexia Friendly School
We are also extremely proud of our school's Nurture provision- The Den. Please see the link for further details.
