Every child should be given the best chance to succeed in life.’  – SEND Code of Practice 2014

St Mary’s is a mainstream, inclusive primary school. At St. Mary’s we believe that each person is unique and of value and therefore each child is entitled to receive an education in accordance with her/his age, ability and aptitude. We believe that all children should be appreciated and respected. We promote attitudes of caring and understanding in the belief that we are a community in which we are all, to some degree, responsible for each other.  We recognise the strengths of every individual as well as areas for development.  We want every child to contribute to the social, cultural and spiritual life of our school and use our best endeavours to make sure that a child with SEN gets the support they need to do this.

In accordance with the SEND Code of Practice 2014, Schedule 1 Regulation 51, we have produced a school SEN Information Report to highlight what our school offers for pupils with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities. The 14 questions set out within the SEN Information Report are questions most commonly asked by parents of children with a Special Educational Need or Disability, linked to the SE7 pathway.  Please scroll through the table (accessed via the link below) to find specific answers to the 14 questions.

If you have any further questions or would like further information, please contact the School Office on 01243 822287, or contact the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) Mrs Lockwood via email.
