At Sharlston Community School we support all our children to enable them to achieve within our school community.
Quality first teaching and high quality learning experiences provide children with the opportunity to learn new skills, acquire knowledge develop their independence and a love of learning.
At Sharlston we are proud of our inclusive ethos where the needs of individual learners are at the centre of their provision.
We recognise that there are occasions where further additional support may be needed to enable our children to reach their goals and work closely with various external agencies.
For more information see Wakefield Local Authority’s Local Offer.
Who can I contact for further information?
If you would like to discuss your child’s special educational needs please contact the school office to arrange a meeting with our SENDCo Mrs Graham or alternatively contact her by email firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the Local Offer?
The Local Offer was first introduced in the Green Paper to detail what local services are available to support disabled children and children with SEN and their families. This information will set out what is normally available in schools to help children with lower level SEN as well as the options to support families who need additional help to care for their child.
The Wakefield framework will allow the Local Offer to provide parents/carers with information about how to access services in their area and what they can expect from those services. It will let parents/carers and young people know how school and colleges will support them and what they can expect across local schools and colleges.
