Welcome to the William Shrewsbury Primary

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities area

Special Education Needs and Disabilities

As our school Inclusion Policy explains, our aim is to raise the aspirations, expectations and progress leading to achievement for all pupils with SEN or a disability. This is the responsibility of every member of our school staff but we have a passionate school inclusion team, consisting of Mrs Heidi Elsmore, Mrs Louise Salt, Mrs Sue Salt, a team of SEND Teaching Assistants who specifically support those children with SEND in the classroom and Mrs Shelley Cartwright who supports children with their speech and language.  Mrs Elsmore and Mrs Salt also offer emotional support for children who may be experiencing some difficulties. Mrs Jane Hammond supports children who are struggling to emotionally regulate using the Zones of Regulation to help them.

We all work very closely with families and offer support and advice.

If you would like further information or to access some support, please contact Mrs Elsmore (SEND) or Mrs Salt (emotional support HOPE mentor) via the school office.

Please see our interactive ‘School Information Report’ for answers to the frequently asked questions around support and accessibility for those with special educational needs or disabilities.
