Westfield Infant School is actively involved with:

  • Leicestershire SEND Co-ordinators Network
  • Meetings for Leicestershire Head teachers with Special Units


A number of these organisations are now traded services and the school can fund assessments and specialist support.


We have an Induction of New Pupils Policy in place that ensures outstanding practices for the induction of new pupils and that provision is accurate from the outset of the pupil joining the school. Any pupil new to the SEND Record will already be having their needs met through interventions in school.
