Whiteshill Primary School

We work to ensure that children are happy at school and develop the skills they need to become successful learners.  We have high expectations of all of the children and ensure that they develop respect for themselves, others and their environment.  Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own behaviour and take pride in the work that they do. 

Parents are an important part of school life and we welcome your help and support.  You are partners in your child's education and we work closely with you to ensure your children can succeed.

Our aim is to ensure that all children develop a lifelong enjoyment of learning.

Local Offer Details

Whiteshill School uses ‘First Quality Teaching’ which assesses pupils regularly and adjusts work and support to match the needs of each pupil. This will be used for all pupils within the school and enables us to identify any issues quickly and deal with them through early support. Most children, including those with Special Educational Needs, will have their needs met through good quality classroom teaching.

For pupils who need more targeted support, this is given through supported work, appropriate tasks, grouping pupils, teaching assistant support, working 1/1 with teaching assistants or the class teacher. Much of this will take place in the classroom. Some pupils may require more targeted or personalised support and may access individualised interventions for part of the week outside of the classroom. We may draw on the support of outside agencies to provide us with advice.

If outside agencies suggest particular programmes or interventions we ensure that staff are trained to support specific difficulties, we also ensure any advice given is embedded into the planning and teaching of the pupil involved and that the skills practiced in the intervention sessions are reinforced in the classroom.

Pupils have access to technology to help them, through laptops, voice recorders, Sound field systems and any other specialised equipment needed for access to the curriculum. We work with specialised teams of advisors such as the Hearing Impaired team, using their advice and resources that they recommend, and sometimes provide, to ensure full access to all of the schools activities. At all times we liaise with parents to ensure that they are aware of the support being given to their child and seek the views of the child as to how they like to be supported and to establish what they think works for them.
