Special Needs provision is a very important aspect of our academy. At Wilton we ensure that children with special needs receive the appropriate support through our in-school support team, which is utilised to meet the individual needs of our children. We pride ourselves on the level of communication and co-operation we gain from this process.
Programmes of work are discussed for each child on the SEND register and learning is tailored to provide opportunities for their targets to be met. This is overseen by the Head of Academy, whose role it is to liaise with teachers and learning assistants to provide the time, resources and training necessary, that ensures inclusion in classroom activities.
