Inclusion is the key to a successful, happy and well-rounded individual. As the Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Inclusion my role is to ensure students and their needs are central to everything we do at WGS. I am the designated SENCO, I oversee Pupil Premium, Attendance and Punctuality of students, and Alternative Provision. Due to the nature of my work there is significant cross over with the pastoral care of students.
