This year a group of year 4 and year 6 pupils have been working with us at WN7 Outreach CIC. They have taken part in various sports sessions, led and delivered by year 10 learners; although their fitness levels were a concern to begin with, we have seen huge progress in their effort. They have also taken part in a gardening project in which they have built planters, made bird feeders and planted various vegetables, demonstrating a great level of maturity in using tools and showing some great DIY skills. We have also engaged in lots of active learning activities such as bird watching, nature walks and a visit to Ordsall Hall; we have been really impressed with the pupils conduct and have thoroughly enjoyed working. We particularly wish the year 6 learners confidence, pride and positivity as they go into year 7 and begin the next stage of their education journey.

At Newton Westpark, we aim to provide an environment in school where all children can access a broad and balanced education and achieve their full potential. We ensure that pupils are given appropriate learning opportunities and that a range of provisions are put in place to engage pupils in a full range of activities and to overcome barriers to their learning.
We ensure that all pupils are fully integrated in the school community and engage in school activities.
We aim for early identification of any special educational needs and disabilities and this process starts from the first day children enter our school. If a child is attaining lower than age related expectations or progress is slower than expected but it is felt that the child does not have any specific needs, then appropriate intervention is planned for within the classroom.
If we suspect a child might have a specific educational need, then we will talk to the people who know the child best - the parents/carers.
With the permission of parents, we may seek additional advice from outside specialists such as health professionals, specialist teachers or educational psychologists who would:
- carry out further assessment of the child's needs
- provide advice to schools on how to best support the child
- suggest resources that would help the child make progress
If your child has special educational needs our SENDCO will:
- ensure the right support is in place for each child
- advise teachers and teaching assistants on how to help each child and ensure they have an up-to-date support plan detailing how their needs will be met in school
- arrange training for staff so they understand each child's needs
- work closely with parents on a regular basis to talk with them about their child's needs and listen to any ideas or concerns they might have
- work with all professionals who may be able to help individual children
There are a range of local services that can provide support for children with SEND and their families. Please click on the links to access more information
