SEN Statement

At Waverley School we ensure all students who are on the register are supported as well as possible. This is done in a variety of ways; teaching assistants help in all faculties, so a child who needs help in technology has that help, just as he would in English and Maths. Teaching assistants also work with form teachers, so that if there is time in the form the children can be helped with their reading. SEN children are offered extra lessons after School to help with their reading as well; they are also offered opportunities to take part in the Summer School in the Summer holiday. Students are given packs of extra work if they wish to use it in the holiday. When the children first arrive at the School the teaching assistants work very closely with the SEN children, particularly children who are statemented; the childen are encouraged to come to the TA office where they can come if they are finding it difficult to adjust to the new school. So, SEN children are given lots of help and support both academically and socially.
At the beginning of the year we try to give the SEN children colour-coded timetables to help them find their way around the School. We ensure all the staff know who are the SEN children so that they can be as supportive as possible.
The greatest strength of Waverley School is its caring and supportive environment; and this is very clear within the SEN team.

Understanding the road risks in your local area

As many of us do, AXA Insurance and Road Safety Analysis believe that one child casualty on Britain’s roads is too much.

The data is presented by local area in order to aid the understanding of risk – it’s not just about killed or seriously injured, but about any incident reported to the police. Although road safety issues may arise due to a myriad of different reasons including proximity to busy roads and local speed limits, schools play a pivotal role in mitigating these risks by investing time in road safety education programmes.
