Special Educational Needs and Disabilities


The Joseph Whitaker School prides itself on being a very inclusive school and we try our utmost to make sure that the provision for students with special educational needs is good. 

The four broad “areas of need” are:

1. Communication and Interaction
2. Cognition and Learning
3. Social, Mental and Emotional Health
4. Sensory and/or Physical

Reasonable adjustments and support are put into place wherever possible to help students with SEND to achieve their academic potential and access the curriculum fully.
