Wimborne St Giles Ce Va First School And Nursery

We are a small First School situated in an idyllic, rural village a few miles North of Wimborne with an 'in-house' Nursery that takes children from 2 years old onwards. Our school motto: 'Working Together, Sharing Together, Growing Together' is central to everything we do and we are really proud of this sense of community and the 'family atmosphere' that we have cultivated. Through our Core Christian values of Respect, Courage, Compassion, Perseverance and Unity we aim to transform our own lives and the lives of everybody within the school. We believe that success is all down to high expectations and aspirations for every child and we aim for excellence in everything we do. School should be a joyful experience for all children; they only have one shot at primary education and the greatest responsibility we have is to get it right for them at the very beginning.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

At our school we adopt a child centred approach, so that the provision and adaptations made for different children will vary according to their needs. We strongly believe in identifying needs early so that we can put in place the support each of our children requires in order to thrive and we closely involve parents in this every step of the way. The school runs varies intervention programmes that provide children with strategies to progress forward such as ELSA [Emotional Literacy Support], Learn to move, move to learn. We work closely with a range of specialist teachers who provide advice, support and guidance for our staff, parents and children. These include: Speech Therapists, Educational Psychologists, Family partnership Zone, Mental Health Service [CAMHS], Portage and Behaviour Support Service. Our physical environment has been adapted to facilitate the use of wheelchairs; including installing access ramps, disabled parking, the widening of doors to washroom facilities; and special washroom facilities. For further information please contact our special educational needs coordinator Mrs Philippa Hill on 01725 517347 or email office@wimbornestgiles.dorset.sch.uk
