At one time or another most pupils struggle with something in school – here’s where you can find information about how you can get support at Westborough (including a printable version of the SEND Information Report 2016-17).

“Our vision is for all pupils to achieve and make progress, no matter what they find difficult in school.”

We’re here to help you!

If you’re worried that your child is struggling with the work, we’re here to listen to you and provide you with help. Your child might need some more tests to find out what additional support they may need, or identify if they have ‘Special Educational Needs’ (SEN). Many people in school do have ‘SEN’ – all this means is that they can get the help they need to succeed in school.

How do we help?

Here’s some of the ways that we’re helping pupils at the moment:

  • Learning Passport

    This is probably the most important tool as it tells your child’s teachers what the pupils are struggling with and how they can help support them. It also gives you and your child clues about how they can help themselves and their own needs (metacognition).

  • Corrective Reading

    This is a course for pupils who are struggling with their reading. There are four levels to the course and it can be delivered to large groups (around 10 pupils), small groups (around 3 pupils ) or ‘one to one’.

  • Reciprocal Reading

    This is a course for pupils who are struggling with understanding what they read. It works best in small groups.

  • Zones of Regulation

    This is a course for pupils who struggle to understand others, or how to understand and manage their own emotions. It works best in small groups.
