SEND at Thorpe Willoughby Community Primary School
At Thorpe Willoughby, all children are equally valued and included fully into the educational and social life of school. We take into account the needs of every child to ensure the best possible outcomes for all. Our approach is underpinned by our school values of community, challenge, aspiration, caring, respect and resilience.
More information on how we meet the needs of children with SEND can be found in our SEND information report and our SEN policy.
Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator is Mrs Alison Lowther. Mrs Lowther works alongside teachers in school to organise support for individual pupils including those with an EHCP (Education and Health Care plans).
The school governor with responsibility for SEND is Mrs Charlotte Haines-Lyon.
