SEND at Langwathby
All children are different and- at Langwathby- we believe our diversity and difference can be our super-strength. We recognise the value of neurodiversity and approach our provision from a person-centred, strength-based start-point. We strive for a model of inclusion where are all learners feel valued and accepted; where all of our learners belong.
Mrs Love is the Special Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCO). She is responsible- along with the Class Teachers, Head Teacher and Governing Body- for SEND provision in School.
A Guided Introduction to our SEND approach can be accessed above, and further information can be found in the documentation below.
Advocacy is important to us; there are links below to various advocacy sites which offer impartial advice on Special Educational Needs for Parents and Carers.
As part of our advocacy of learners, we have a Special Educational Needs 'Inclusion Champion' School Councillor. This individual is known to the pupils and feeds back SEND related successes and concerns to School Council at regular meetings. The Inclusion Champion also leads School Council's work on Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 10 (Quality Education and Reduced Inequality). Our Inclusion Champion was part of the 'All of Us' County pupil voice project in 2021- the only Primary-age participant.
If you would like support or signposting in relation to a specific Special Educational Need, please reach out to our SENCO for bespoke guidance and direction. Local Agency support can also be found under the Parent Tab.
Cumbria SEND IAS Service (which was formerly known as the Parent Partnership Service) offers impartial information, advice and support to children and young people with special educational needs and or disabilities and their parents and carers.
