All Unity Schools Partnership schools strive to ensure that all children leave their settings as confident, resilient individuals, positive about their future and equipped to deal with challenges – having a learning difficulty or disability is not seen as a barrier to achievement.
There is a belief that all children can make good progress, whatever their starting point. We encourage our learners to strive constantly to gain independent learning skills and have the courage to take risks and develop personal responsibility to make a successful transition to adulthood.
The Code of Practice expects all schools to support children with SEND to:
achieve their best
become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and
make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training (Code of Practice 6.1)
Unity Schools Partnership believe that having high self-esteem is crucial to children and young people’s wellbeing.
In the Unity Schools Partnership, we endeavour to offer all students equal opportunities to participate fully in school life, including after-school activities and school trips.
Westley Middle School follows the requirement of the SEN Code of Practice to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to the environment, curriculum and timetable; to address all students’ needs by alleviating substantial disadvantage and being fully compliant with equalities legislation.
This includes a duty to provide auxiliary aids and services to students with physical disabilities.
Westley Middle School will ensure that the dignity and modesty of students with physical disabilities, requiring personal care, is maintained.
