SEN Information

 

At Woodfield Primary School, we are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve their best. The achievement, attitude and well-being of every child matters and inclusion is the responsibility of everyone within our school. Every teacher is a teacher of every child, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. We respect the unique contribution which every individual can make to our school community.
