"If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." - Ignacio Estrada

The LINC (Learning, Inclusion, Nurturing Centre) Vision Statement

West Craven High School is an inclusive learning community that is committed to ensuring that all students are able to achieve the best possible progress and are supported to become assured and independent learners whatever their needs or abilities. 

Inclusion Statement

West Craven High School SEND policy is inclusive, enabling students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities to join in the activities of the school together with students who do not have special educational needs, so far as is reasonably practical and compatible with the student receiving the special educational provision and the effective education of the students with whom they are educated.     


The staff and governors of West Craven High School will endeavour to ensure that necessary provision is made for all SEND students to receive a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, that they are given the opportunity to reach their full potential, and that they are fully included within the school community. 

West Craven High School is an inclusive school and is therefore committed to welcoming all students. Adjustments will be made where necessary and where possible to enable all students for whom West Craven High School is the best placement, to access lessons and social time as freely as possible. Needs and adjustments will be considered on an individual basis.
