Whitley Lodge is a fully inclusive school who ensures that all pupils achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally, physically and educationally.

The SEN Information Report shows our implementation of the governing body’s policy for pupils with SEN, we publish the report on our school website and ensure it is updated annually or in a timely manner post any updated changes throughout the year. In addition, our SEN Information Report lets you understand how we support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.

We consult with pupils and their families on our SEN Information Report by:

  • Requesting feedback through parent questionnaire on an annual basis
  • Using the school APP to sign post
  • Asking our pupils to feedback through our school council

In addition to our SEN Information Report, related school policies available on our website include:-

  • Behaviour Policy
  • Child Protection Policy and Safeguarding Statement
  • Medicines in School Policy
  • SEN Policy

ARP (Additional Resourced Provision)

Whitley Lodge has an Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) that caters for up to 5 children with moderate learning difficulties within the context of the mainstream school.

Children in this provision work in the “Rainbow Room” each morning, following Literacy and Numeracy learning plans tailored to meet the individual needs of each child.

In the afternoons the children work in their mainstream classroom, alongside their peers, supported by a teaching assistant.
