Inclusion update at Waterside
From Mrs Willis – AHT – Inclusion Leader
As Waterside Primary School’s Inclusion leader, I am here to offer to support and advice regarding additional needs or SEND support for your child. Please remember, if you ever have any suggestions, queries or concerns about anything to do with inclusion and SEND, then do call or come and see me at the school - or don’t forget there is chance to drop-in and see your child’s teacher every Friday 3:40pm – 4:00pm or phone and ask to book an appointment with Mrs Willis in the school office. My management days are Monday and Thursday.
The Spring term is upon us at Waterside Primary School, and it has been a great start to the year. Last week Waterside children took part in Children’s mental health week. The theme this year was ‘Being Ourselves.’ At Waterside we encourage children to celebrate their uniqueness and develop a positive mindset about themselves. This is vital for the children’s wellbeing. The children took part in various class activities learning about how to promote their own identiy and how to take care of their mental health. Please visit your child’s class blog to find out more. We believe that parents play a vital role in developing self-esteem and belief in their own abilities. Please Vist http://www.waterside.stoke.sch.uk/semh/ for more imformation and links to external websites.
This half term I have had the opportunity to talk to your children about school, and it was an absolute pleasure. Our children with SEND are becoming extremely confident and have some wonderful ideas on how we can move the school forward.
What did they say?
This coming half-term I will be looking at how we can also support your child at home with learning packs and increasing their confidence in all subjects.
We value the feedback that we receive from parents. If you have a child that is currently on the SEN register, I would appreciate 5 minutes of your time to complete the questionnaire on the link below. Your feedback will be used in order to continue to develop our inclusive practise and would be greatly appreciated.
