Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Intent Statement
At Wrekin View we believe that all children are entitled to receive a high quality, ambitious and engaging curriculum, regardless of need or disability. We aim to fulfil the potential of every child by offering a broad and balanced curriculum, often delivered in innovative and creative ways. Our inclusive school welcomes all children and values them as individuals, treating them equally and with respect. We believe that all children have the right to have their own individual needs recognised and addressed to achieve success.
Our use of a wide range of resources and strategies enables all pupils to develop the skills and attitudes to become independent learners and communicators, both at our school and through to adulthood. At Wrekin View all teachers are teachers of children with SEND and it is therefore a whole school responsibility to ensure that these children’s needs are addressed. Through staff working together as a team, and in partnership with pupils, their parents and carers or with external professionals we strive to ensure that all pupils with SEND are provided with an environment in which they can flourish.
Wrekin View Primary School is a mainstream school with an inclusive and ambitious ethos for all children. Whilst most children’s needs are met within the classroom there may be some children who require support above and beyond the majority of their peers. Additional support is delivered in many different ways, at different stages and is usually referred to as ‘The Graduated Response’. By following the link below you will see what support looks like at each stage (Wave 1 – 3).
A small number of children from within the local authority are also educated in the Language Class at Wrekin View. This is one of two specialist provision units within Telford and Wrekin and supports pupils with speech, language and communication needs. All places in the Language Class are allocated by the speech therapy service, NOT school staff or the general admissions team for Telford and Wrekin. Being a pupil at Wrekin View Primary School does not increase the chances of a child being offered a place in the Language Class.

At Wrekin View we assess the needs of the individual child through observation, a graduated response and working with external agencies (where needed) to identify how best to support them.
4 Broad Areas of Need
A brief description of the four broad areas of need follows. Many children have needs in more than one area, and every child is different; often the area of need given for a particular child is their ‘prime’ area.
