We use SEND as a shorter way to say Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Our SEN Information Report – which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer – provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school.
The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated on July 5th 2022.
Intent for SEND children
At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School all children are equally valued. All children with SEND will receive a high quality and ambitious education regardless of need or disability. We believe in a wholly inclusive experience for our SEND children where they can flourish and feel safe. We intend for all our pupils to be equipped with the tools needed to become independent, inquisitive learners, both in and outside of the classroom.]
This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan which you can find in the School Policies section.
- Mr David Miller is our Headteacher
