Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information
All children are special. However, some require more particular provision and may need to work in smaller groups or receive more dedicated adult support at some stage in their time at the school. St Mary and All Saints prides itself on its ability to offer and successfully deliver a full curriculum that is inclusive to all children, irrespective of need.
Our aim is to identify areas where children may be under achieving or having learning difficulties at an early stage. We identify those with additional needs using RBC guidance, and inform parents if we think children require additional support. We assess all children regularly and plan for their provision in class and any additional interventions in a smaller group. For those on the SEN register, progress is reviewed and outcomes agreed six times during the school year. We strive to work closely with parents and children, responding to any concerns and celebrating achievements.
Professionals Involved with the School
SEN provision at St Mary and All Saints is overseen by Mrs Dunn, our SENCO, who works in partnership with teachers, teaching assistants, and a range of external educational specialists as required. This includes: an educational psychologist, a physiotherapist, an outreach team, a speech and language therapist, a behaviour support team, and occupational therapy and equality services.
