"Teachers plan learning and support that helps disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs to make progress at a similar rate to their peers. Teaching assistants are used well to support and motivate individual pupils and to ensure they understand what to do."

SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability)

At St. Mary's Catholic Primary School, we are committed to offering an inclusive provision to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils, whatever their needs or abilities. Our educational aims for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, are the same as those for all children in the school.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Ball (our SEND Co-ordinator) on 01582 602420, or email sball@stmarysprimary.org.uk

 

The Mind Map Charity

We recently held a Mind Map workshop for parents to help support children's mental health and well-being.  We thought it was so useful, we wanted to share the presentation with you here for future reference.
