SEND and Inclusion
At Holy Family we are committed to the equality of opportunity for all pupils. In line with Holy Family's mission statement, whereby each child is seen as an individual with his/her own particular needs and potential, we aim to ensure that every child participates fully in the curriculum and, social and spiritual life of the school, irrespective of age, ability or disability, as far as they are able.
We have strong relationships with many agencies outside school to help us meet the additional needs of some of our children and to support their families e.g. Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists & Occupational Therapists.
Our SEND School Information Report describes the provision Holy Family makes for children who have a greater difficulty in learning (i.e. both in the academic and social context) than the majority of the children of the same age, or who have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities, of the kind generally available in our school (from 1981 & 1983 Education Act). We are currently in the process of updating our SEND Information Report and would love to hear your thoughts! Further information can also be found in our SEND Policy.
We have a SEND Parent Committee, meeting once a term, which is a brilliant opportunity for you to be involved in co-producing some key elements related to SEND at Holy Family. All are welcome! Our next meeting is on Tuesday 2nd November 2021 5.15pm via Teams, please look out for info coming home or ask for more details.
If you would like to discuss your child's needs with our SENDCo, Mrs Burn, please call 01454 866786.
Mrs Burn's working day is Tuesday in school and Wednesday morning from home.
