SEND and Equality

We are proud to be an inclusive school.


Willowbrook Primary School aims to create an inclusive, caring community where all feel happy, valued and secure whatever their needs and abilities. We have a skilled team of teaching and support staff who between them ensure that every child has opportunities to take part fully in school life and achieve their best.


Our SEND Information Report and SEN school policy can be found below, which will give parents further information about how we support children with Special Educational Needs. Any parent who wishes to discuss their individual child’s needs is encouraged to meet with their child’s teacher, the SENCo, Mrs Youngblood, or the Head Teacher, Mrs Branton (01277 214662).

The Essex local offer provides a wealth of information to parents about Essex's provision for special educational needs and disability. It doesn't just cover education but all aspects of life. Click on the link below to be taken straight through to the website.

Multi Schools Council

We are now part of the Multi Schools Council.  The Multi Schools Council was started in 2012 to help break down perceptions towards children with SEND and mental health difficulties in schools and their wider communities.   Each term, children from mainstream and special schools meet to learn more about each other and put their plans in place for making a difference.   Not only does the Council help break down perceptions, it provides young people with an opportunity to improve their confidence, to develop their personal and social skills and to promote important values like democracy and tolerance.  Our year 6 Inclusion Ambassadors and Primary Ambassadors attend the council meetings.

If you have a child between 0 – 25 years who has any additional need or disability and you live under Essex County Council, Thurrock or Southend local authorities then SNAP are here for you and your family.

No formal diagnosis or professional referral is necessary to access SNAP services.
