Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

Willow Dene is a large primary special school that aims to provide high quality education for children with a wide range of learning disabilities: moderate, severe, profound and multiple learning disabilities, complex medical needs, physical disabilities and children on the autistic spectrum.

In addition to the direct provision for children, including close multi-professional working with health professionals (SaLT; physiotherapy, OT, music therapy, school nursing service etc), the school has 4 Outreach services - Visual Impairment Service, ASD Outreach Service, the Specific Learning Difficulties Service and the SENCo Project who work to support children with moderate to severe learning difficulties in mainstream schools. All of the outreach projects have close working links with the school as well as supporting children with learning difficulties in mainstream schools and providing training for teachers, support staff and parents. The school had a very successful OFSTED inspection in May 2007.

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.
