What Does It Mean If My Child Is Identified As Having SEND?
If your child is identified as having a special educational need, you will be informed by our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator [SENCo], Mrs Holmes. With your consent, your child will be added to our school SEND register. An Individual Provision Map (referred to as a ‘Step 7’) will be created for your child, outlining key targets relating to their personal needs. These will be reviewed on a termly basis at a meeting with the class teacher and parents / carers.
What Are The Different Areas of SEND?
The needs of a child with SEND will fall under one or more of these four areas, as outlined in the SEND Code of Practice:
What Support Will My Child Get In School?
Every child at St George’s Catholic Primary receives quality first teaching within the classroom. However, for those pupils who may require further support, additional help may be provided through individual or group interventions. Resources can also be provided to support your child within the classroom setting.
If further advice and support for your child is needed, a referral may also be made to an outside agency. Parental consent will always be requested prior to making any referral.
We work with a range of outside agencies: The Visual Impairment Team, Learning Support Team, Educational Psychologists, Teachers of the Deaf and Behaviour Support Team.

Where Can I Find Out More Information?
Our SENCo is available to meet with any parents every Wednesday afternoon between 2:00 – 3:00pm. No appointment is needed for these drop in sessions. Please find further information regarding SEND in our Parents and Carers Leaflet.
