SEND Reforms

Embracing the new SEND Reform (Special Educational Needs and Disability) - Childrens and Family Act 2014.

The College embraces the new Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014 and the Children's and Family Act 2014.

The Additional Learning Support team at Weston College, works hard to ensure that the Principles within the SEND reforms are met across college. 

We are making sure that:

  • Young people and their families are at the centre of all discussions around the support we provide
  • The support offered takes into account young people's health, care and educational needs
  • We work closely with the young person's local authority to access all aspects of the services available in the area.
  • Young people and families are supported during the transition to an Education Health and Care Plan
  • We focus and prepare young people for adulthood, including employment, independent living or higher level courses.
  • Person-centred reviews are provided ensuring young people meet their individualised goals and their EHCP outcomes are reviewed well.

One Message, Different Voices

Take a look at this powerful film made by the staff of Weston College to show how important it is for everyone from different backgrounds to be included. The film shares heartfelt stories and interviews with a diverse group of staff, showing how accepting different identities and backgrounds can make a big difference. Its purpose is to encourage viewers to think about their own biases and work towards making our community more welcoming to all. We invite everyone, regardless of their background, to join us and be a part of our journey toward a more inclusive future.

Halo workplace logo

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps. In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employee's ability to succeed.
