Wellgate Primary School prides itself in being inclusive and will endeavor to support every pupil. We would love you to consider our school and we aim to meet the needs of all the children in our care.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents/carers to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure the school can meet any needs appropriately.
If you would like to discuss moving a child to our school or are thinking of choosing our school for your child, please contact the school office who will direct you to the correct member of staff or please make an appointment to speak to our school SENCO/Inclusion (Mrs K. Richardson).
