At St William of York we see difference as an asset. Including those with a range of different strengths and needs is a core part of our educational vision. Inclusion runs through each of the school’s core values of care, challenge and community.

St William of York Primary School is committed to meeting the needs of all pupils including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We expect every child with SEND to receive a full and enriching education to enable them to achieve their potential. This is so that they can make a successful and happy transition into adulthood, whether that is accessing employment, further education or training.

We involve external experts whenever necessary to improve our offer and ensure that children’s needs are identified and met as quickly as possible. We similarly ensure that staff have the relevant training and support to ensure that best practice is used with regard to SEND. Teachers, support staff and our Sendco and Inclusion Consultant have frequent and open communication ensuring that the school community works together to implement plans and provide for children with SEND.

At every step of this process, we aim to involve parents and families and build trusting and open relationships. It is important that we work as a team with you to ensure the best outcomes for all children.
