At our school we are committed to meeting the special educational needs of our children and ensuring that they make good progress. Our policy for Special Needs supports the vision of the school: 'Together we learn, together we grow, with faith, love and God beside us'.
We welcome all children and endeavour to ensure that the appropriate provision is made to cater for individual needs. Children with special educational needs and disabilities are admitted in line with the schools’ admissions policy and on an equal basis with all other children according to set criteria. The school takes into account the suitability of the child to mainstream education, and availability of resources and facilities to meet that child’s needs.
We work closely with outside agencies, other settings, professionals and parents to ascertain whether a child has been identified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities. If the school is alerted to the fact that a child may have a difficulty in learning they will collect all relevant information and plan a relevant differentiated curriculum.
The SEND Team is made up of Mrs Hitchcock, Inclusion Lead, and Mrs Paris, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo). Both work closely with teaching and support staff. They can be contacted via the school office and on firstname.lastname@example.org.
At St Nicholas Primary School we are proud of our inclusive practice and what we offer all children.
