At West London & Earl’s Court Free School Primaries, we aim to ensure that all children are able to access our curriculum the whole curriculum including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). All children may experience challenges with their learning at different times during their school career and we have provision in place to ensure that children are given the best opportunities to overcome these challenges.

We recognise the importance of early identification of any additional needs, therefore we ensure that swift scaffolding and intervention is implemented to ensure that these are addressed quickly.

When a child has a significant individual need, we make reasonable adjustments to our provision in order to ensure that their need is met. Sometimes the schools may request support from outside agencies, such as the Educational Psychologist and Inspire Outreach Teams, to ensure our support is as targeted as possible.

What is the Local Offer?

A Local Offer gives children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities, and their families, information about what support services the local authority think will be available in their local area. Every local authority is responsible for writing a Local Offer and making sure it is available for everyone to see.

You can find the Local Offer for London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham here.
