Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

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 Mrs Temple, who can be contacted via the school office.

You can view our SEND Policy online, together with a range of other policies that may be of relevance including our Accessibility Plan
