SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)

Our SENCO is Mr Kenny

Email address: senco@woodlands.herts.sch.uk

Woodlands Primary School is an inclusive school, which offers a wide range of provisions, over and above Quality First Teaching, to meet the needs of all the SEND pupils within our care. At Woodlands we recognise that pupils with SEND may require additional support to enable them to meet their full potential. Through carefully differentiating lessons, the provision of specialist resources and targeted interventions, we support and challenge our children, encouraging all to become confident, independent learners. At Woodlands, we work with a range of external agencies to support pupils with SEND - enabling them to access the curriculum and make best progress.

GT&A (Gifted, Talented and Able)

At Woodlands, we recognise that children work at varying academic levels.  Our lessons are well differentiated and we aim to ensure that GT&A students are appropriately challenged.  We work closely with local primary schools and our local secondary school to provide opportunities for GT&A pupils to work together.
