Growing Together in Faith, Love and Learning


Special Education Needs & Disability

Our SEND Co-ordinator is Mrs Cathy Armstrong who can be contacted on the main school office telephone number 01257 401125.

We believe that every child is unique and special and that we have a duty to ensure they grow in faith, in love and in their learning. The new Code of Practice reflects our educational philosophy that we are educators of the whole child. The four areas outlined in the Code of Practice identify four main areas of nurturing that children need. In addition to these four, we believe that spiritual growth is of equal importance and whilst this isn’t directly reflected in the new Code, we are confident this area of nurture is addressed through our Collective Worship and everyday ethos in school. By committing fully to addressing the four areas in the Code of Practice, we are continually striving to ensure that every opportunity is given to allow each child to be and achieve the best they can.
