At Whitefield we are committed to inclusion and equal opportunities. We work closely with parents and other agencies in order to ensure that all pupils are able to successfully access the curriculum.
Our school population includes a wide range of different community groups and we are dedicated to ensuring that our school is a place where everyone feels welcome and where all pupils can learn.
Our consistently high expectations and inclusive teaching practices ensure that Whitefield is really a school where children can achieve their best. We are committed to introducing the best in quality provision for our pupils and this year we are moving on to develop a Social Thinking approach throughout school. Our pupils will benefit from a range of Social Thinking interventions and all pupils with develop their understanding about managing feelings.
We are a Flagship School for the Inclusion Quality Mark. Our Inclusion Manager was awarded the National “Most Inspirational Leader of SEND” Award by National Association for SEN (nasen) in 2018/19.
Our pupils have a range of different abilities and interests, beliefs and aspirations. Many of our pupils also speak other languages and are learning to speak English.
At Whitefield, we want all of our pupils to succeed and thoroughly enjoy their education. The staff at Whitefield Primary are experienced in teaching pupils with a wide range of abilities and are trained to use a variety of different techniques and intervention programmes to ensure all children can access the curriculum fully. To support this we have recently achieved the bronze Attachment and Trauma Sensitive Schools Award and are working towards silver.
Please take the time to read our School Offer which outlines the ways in which we support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. Our School Offer can also be found published on the Liverpool Early Help Directory website. We welcome the involvement of parents and carers in decision making and we want to work closely with them so that our pupils can always give nothing but the best!
