Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND)

At Winterbourne Nursery & Infant School we are committed to meeting the needs of every pupil at the school. We have high expectations of all pupils whatever their needs and abilities and teach a creative, inclusive and enriched curriculum that helps every child reach his or her potential.

Children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) are highly valued and respected and are supported by dedicated, skilled and motivated teachers and support staff. We work hard to ensure that a child’s individual challenges are addressed and monitored so that every child makes progress, both academically and emotionally.

we are committed to providing the right education for our pupils.  We are a fully inclusive school that welcomes and celebrates diversity.

All Croydon maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
