Special Educational Needs (SEN)
If children are considered to have Special Educational Needs (SEN) they are then identified and parents are consulted. Their needs will then be assessed and individual programmes of work devised and monitored by the teacher concerned.
Special Educational Needs (SEN) Pupil Premium Grants
The Government introduced the Pupil Premium in 2011 to provide extra funding to children in receipt of Free School Meals. The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
At Westwood we have decided to spend this money on increased support across the curriculum through additional Teaching Assistant hours - please click here for more information on Pupil Premium.
Primary School Sport Funding
The Government has announced new sport funding to be paid in 2013/14 and 2014/15. Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport. At Westwood we hope to receive some of this funding. Please click here for updated information on PE and Sport Funding. At present we aim to use this money to support the development of our staff team's skills using specialist trainers / coaches.
