SEND

St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery aims to be as inclusive as possible.

We are fortunate enough to have fantastic facilities across both buildings including a care suite, an intervention room and a sensory area.  We are more than happy to discuss any individual access requirements your child may have.

If your child is joining our school with a pre-existing medical condition or having had previous SEND support we will allocate our support according to information provided by the feeder school, yourselves and assessments by class teachers and our SEND team if necessary.

 

The SENCO may visit their previous school or pre-school to observe and collect information. Your child will be able to visit St Ethelbert’s and if appropriate stay for a taster session, we will also offer a transition book if this may help things run smoothly.

If your child has a medical condition, then a detailed care plan will be compiled with yourself by a member of our SEN team.

 

Activities and school trips are open to all pupils, risk assessments are carried out beforehand and if this suggests an intensive level of 1:1 support is required a parent or carer may be asked to accompany the child.

 

Information on the provision that the local area expects to be made available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities attending mainstream schools can be found here:

At St Ethelbert’s we believe we are one holy family that will support your family through the most precious years of your child’s life.  Simple put, we are here to hear you. We understand that school is a vital part of that and information that can be passed into the home environment will endorse the well being of all. Together we can lift our spirits higher.
