Our guiding principle is one of Inclusion and that of a person-centred approach. We aim to provide quality first teaching for all of our pupils so that no child is left behind. This includes appropriate differentiation for individual pupils, the use of high-quality resources and effective use of additional adult support. We are dedicated to creating an inclusive environment that will enable children to achieve their full potential and to bridge the gap with their peers.

We have step-free access around the building including a lift to the upper floors, step-free access to the playground and all classrooms and dining room. We also have a sensory room.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCO) is Jessica Richards. To contact her, please send an email to admin@williamtorbitt.redbridge.sch.uk FAO: SENDCo
