At St George’s RC Primary School we support all children to enable them to be the best they can possibly be. 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 support may be needed to help them overcome difficulties.
Our SENDCo is Miss Birkenshaw, who can be contacted via the school office.
Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Information Report
What is the SEND Report?
By 2014, schools are required to publish information about services they provide for children with disabilities and Special Educational Needs. This is called the ‘SEND Report.’ The intention is to offer choice and transparency for families, as well as providing a resource for professionals to detail the range of services and provision locally.
Our SEND school report outlines the provision which we offer at St George’s RC Primary School and aims to answer any potential questions which you might have.
This report should be read in conjunction with the Local Authority’s Local Offer, available on the Yor-ok website.
