School Offer for SEND

At St Mary’s, we strive to support all our children and enable them to reach their full potential at school. In order to do this, many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.

Admission Arrangements for Children with Disabilities

The arrangements for the admission of pupils with Special Needs or disabilities to gain admission as pupils to St Mary’s fall within our duties under the Equality Act 2010 and are the same as those applied to all pupils.

St Mary’s will take steps to prevent disabled pupils from being treated less favourably than other pupils. We will use our best endeavours to ensure that no child is unable to attend St Mary’s because of any special need or disability. In order to promote equality of opportunity for disabled children we will make reasonable adjustments (including the provision of auxiliary aids and services) to prevent them being put under a disadvantage.

In practice we ensure that classroom and extra-curricular activities encourage the participation of all pupils, including those categorised as having special educational needs or disability.  Staff organise human and physical resources within the school to increase access to learning and participation by all pupils.
