Advice for Families with Disabled Children
At our school, we welcome families who have disabilities or additional needs. We will do all we can to make life as easy as possible and support the learning and inclusivity of your children.
To enable us to do this, please come and talk to us to help us understand how we can best help. Our leadership and teaching teams, as well as all of our support staff and governors, are keen to make West Kidlington Primary School and Nursery a welcoming, supportive, and friendly place for all children. We have designated staff here to support with a range of disabilities, be they physical, emotional, or learning-based. We aim for a partnership between home and school, with close links between the parents or carers and the class teacher, supported by the school’s SENCo Jo Simpson. Read more about our approach here.
The school is fully accessible, and we have a range of resources to support children with additional needs. We would welcome any family with disabilities to come and visit us and talk to us about how we can support you.
In this section, you will find links to helpful information and advice about a variety of disabilities, including deafness, blindness, and learning difficulties.
