Special educational needs and disabilities children

Most children with special educational needs and disabilities can attend mainstream schools, whether or not they have an education health and care (EHC) plan.

If your child has an EHC plan their school placement will be arranged by the SEN Team.

If you have changed email address, please ensure you can still access the original one so you can receive your offer, or you can view your offer online.

Term 6:

Once the secondary school places have been accepted, the secondary schools will contact WJS to arrange for a member of their staff to come into school to chat with your child. They will also meet with their class teacher and SENCo (if required) to share transition information (such as academic achievement, attendance, special arrangements, friendships).  

Parents will be informed of when the secondary schools will be visiting the children via our School Newsletter.

You will also receive information directly to your email with details of information evenings and transition days. Most secondary schools have the first Thursday of July as the day the children are invited to attend their new Secondary school for the day (wearing WJS school uniform) some schools do extend this to up to 5 days.
