Warbstow Primary Academy is committed in both vision and practice to an inclusive ethos which values the achievements of all children. As a small school we recognise that the needs of our children may change from year to year and we are committed to adapting and developing so that we can respond well to the diverse needs of the children in our local community. We have high aspirations of all of our children, we expect the children with SEND to make as much progress as all children. Our curriculum enables our children to develop a life long love of learning, to develop a curious approach to the acquisition of skills and knowledge.
As a school we have experience in working with children with a range of special educational needs and disabilities such as: Dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Physical and medical needs, speech and language and communication needs, hearing and vision difficulties, asthma, diabetes, global delay, emotional and social needs, and mental health difficulties.
Mrs Bancroft is an experienced SENCo, having worked across a variety of schools as Inclusion Lead. She undertook the National SENCo Award in 2015 through Oxford Brookes University. Mrs Bancroft is passionate about inclusion, she has a good working knowledge of the different areas of Special Educational Needs and is proactive in supporting each child to achieve their full potential.
We regularly work with outside agencies such as Educational Psychologists, the Dyslexia team, the Behaviour team, and Physiotherapists according to the needs of the children in our care.
