SEND at St Augustine's Catholic Primary School
SEND leads within school - Mrs Antonia McMorland and Miss Emily McLoughlin
At St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School Christ is central and evident in everything that we attempt to do, our first task is to ensure that we recognise and respect the gifts and needs of every individual. In the bible we are reminded that “Children are a gift from the lord; they are a real blessing.” (Psalm 127: 3-5) and with this in mind we are committed to the inclusion of all pupils and provide a broad and balanced creative curriculum that is made accessible to all. Our pupils have a variety of needs and aspirations, and we recognise that any learner may at sometime during their educational journey have special educational needs.
Our mission states that “The Purpose of our school is to educate each child to develop and achieve their potential within a caring, Catholic community, governed by Gospel values.” Our mission statement reflects very simply what we hope to achieve, we want to raise the aspirations and expectations for all pupils with SEND and enable them to overcome any difficulties that they may have. In order to do this we need parents as partners in their child’s educational journey. We have high expectations for all our children and as such want to provide for them a happy and holy school where care and respect is evident in all that we do.
Our Multi Academy Trust policy outlines the framework for how we meet our duty and obligation to provide a high quality education to all of our pupils, including pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and to do everything we can to meet the needs of pupils with SEND.
