St Wilfrid’s is an inclusive Alternative Provision Free School which accommodates all kinds of special educational needs and disabilities.

We aim to be responsive to the diversity of children’s backgrounds, interests, experience, knowledge and skills.
Special educational needs are classified in four main categories as referred to in the reforms to the SEN Code of Practice (Sept 2014.) These are:

  1. Communication and interaction.
  2. Cognition and learning.
  3. Social, mental and emotional health.
  4. Sensory and/or physical.
