Special Educational Needs


Hello, my name is Emma Milnes and I am the SENCo at Whitehill Primary School. At Whitehill our, team are committed to ensuring that children are happy to come to school, they feel safe and secure within our school environment and they know their ‘go-to’ adult to seek out when times get tough. I pride myself in our open-door policy and take great pleasure in supporting families and carers ensuring their children have the very best of opportunities available to them. Parents are able to contact me via Class Dojo or by calling school directly and selecting the option to speak to SENCO (my office days are Mondays and Tuesdays). Alternatively, I can be contacted directly via email: senco@whitehill.stockport.sch.uk


At Whitehill Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital. However, for some children, there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets. Our Provision Pyramids show the different levels of support that we offer children in our school.
