Julie works across all 3 sites in the federation, Alderman White School, The Bramcote School and Bramcote College. Her role is to make sure that students with Special Education Needs or Disabilities are identified and receive appropriate additional support to allow them to participate in school and to regularly review this to ensure it continues to meet their needs as they move through the school in order for them to achieve.

If you have any concerns you can contact Julie by phone at your child's school or e-mail julie.shiels@whpfederation.org

Janet is the Family SENCo for White Hills Park Federation Trust. In this role she oversees and supports the SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) work across the Federation’s 14 schools. The Federation is made up of 2 school families – Alderman White School and The Bramcote School. Each family has one Secondary school and six Primary, Junior or Infant schools.

If you have any concerns about your child, you should speak to your child’s teacher or the school SENCo.
