Westacre Middle school is committed to Safeguarding and ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of every child. It is only when these needs are addressed that children can fully access opportunities and fulfil their potential. At Westacre, we are proud of our commitment to the education of the whole child and meeting the needs of all individual pupils. Our focus as a school is to enable all children to achieve their best and be happy independent learners.
We recognise that during their time at school, children may need additional help or support for a short or longer period of time. This help may be needed for many reasons, including behavioural, social and emotional support and access to learning support. In light of this, we have an Inclusion Team who are able to support children to ensure they are confident and resilient learners, can access the curriculum, make good progress and realise their full potential. This includes supporting children identified as ‘more able.’ To ensure that we can meet our children’s individual needs as quickly and effectively as possible, our Inclusion Team encompasses a wide array of roles and responsibilities.
