SEND Overview and School Offer

St Francis of Assisi C of E Primary School values the abilities and achievements of all our pupils. We are an inclusive school and actively seek to remove barriers to learning and participation. We strive to provide the best learning environment for all our pupils. The children learn within the boundaries of a caring and supportive Christian ethos.

The school provides a broad and balanced curriculum which celebrates the achievements of all. Teachers build on positive aspects of the child’s learning, and we promote the development of any child emotionally and socially.

Mrs Marie Watson is the Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo) and she works closely with school staff and outside agencies to support and assess children as a need arises.

All of our staff in school are there to support any children who have Special Educational Needs.
