St Francis CofE Primary School


Inclusion: Special Educational Needs and /or disability (SEND)

A child has special education needs if he or she has a learning difficulty, which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. 

 St Francis CofE Primary School aims to :
  • provide every possible opportunity to develop pupils' full potential
  • provide a differentiated and inclusive curriculum that is broad and balanced
  • provide appropriate resources and support
  • promote good practice for teaching and learning. A key principle being "If a child does not learn in the way we teach him/her then we must teach him/her in the way he he/she learns best"
  • work in partnership with parents/carers to liaise on pupil provision, attainment and progress
  • access support from external agencies as appropriate ( e.g. speech and Language therapy, Education Psychology, hearing impairment team, ASC outreach, Nyland campus outreach).

Day to day support for all pupils is directed by the class teacher with additional support from Teaching Assistants. Any queries regarding a pupils learning should be directed to the class teacher in the first instance.

Should you have any further queries please contact the relevant St Francis SENCO for your child's Key Stage via the school office (Tel: 727624).
