Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

"Leaders have a curriculum that contains a wide range of subjects. It meets the needs of all pupils well, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Leaders organise the curriculum so that pupils with SEND do not miss out on any subjects."

OFSTED (February, 2020)

At St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School, we aim for all children to fulfil their potential spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically in order to become independent and enthusiastic learners. We work alongside families to provide for children with Special Educational Needs and disabilities (SEND) and to ensure appropriate support is in place to meet the needs of each child. 

We ensure that families are informed of their child's learning at regular intervals throughout the year. Star Day meetings are held termly at St. Anne's to allow families to meet with teaching staff and the SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) to discuss targets and interventions that will be put in place to meet their child's needs. Class teachers monitor children’s progress on a regular basis and provide targeted support within the classroom, such as small group activities with the class teacher or a teaching assistant or formal interventions that take place outside of the classroom. A small number of children will require an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The Local Authority will complete a Needs Assessment to identify whether a child requires an EHCP. Children with an EHCP will receive additional support from the class teacher or a teaching assistant when in school.  

The SENCO is supported by the following agencies who provide specialist advice on a regular basis: the Educational Psychology Service, Cheshire East Autism Team (CEAT), the Community Paediatricians and Speech and Language Therapists. Referrals are made by the SENCO and further advice can be cought by parents from the advice group, CEIAS (Cheshire East Information Advice and Support). 

Ms Alcock is the school SENCO. To contact her, please email: senco@stannes.cheshire.sch.uk
