A revised Special Educational Needs Code of Practice has been in place since 1st September 2014. See details below...

Special Educational Needs - Our School Information Report

Our SEN Information Report highlights some of the key points identified in the Code of Practice 2014 (section 6.79). For more detailed information, please see our Inclusion and SEN Policy.

At St. Mary's, we support children with a variety of needs. The four broad ‘areas of need’ as specified in the SEN Code of Practice are 'Communication and Interaction', 'Cognition and Learning', 'Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties', and 'Sensory and Physical Needs'. Our SEN School Information and the links below aim to describe how we provide support for pupils across the areas of need.
