How will the school support a child with SEND?

Our Lady and St Patrick's is an inclusive school and we believe that every child should be involved in all areas of the curriculum. Our teachers know all our children very well and are used to supporting children with many different needs. We cater for children with additional needs in Cognition and Learning (including those children who struggle with early application of reading, writing and maths skills); Communication and Interaction (including those children with a diagnosis of Autism); Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (including those with a diagnosis of Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)) and those with a Physical and/or Sensory need. We will adapt our plans and activities to suit all children and work with parent/carers to ensure all our children feel included. We will also change the physical environment if needed e.g. to create a personal space or to allow access.
