SEND information about our school.

Introduction

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.

At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School we are committed to the equal inclusion of all children in all areas of primary school life. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We believe that where best practice meets the needs of those with Special Educational Needs and or Disabilities and the most disadvantaged children, it is best practice for all.  This enables all children to achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs)

The SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan.

For information on the admission of pupils with a disability, please visit the School Admission section of our website and view the Accessibility Plan in our School Policies section. If you would like to discuss your child’s SEN in more detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
