St Martin’s CE School is part of the St Barnabas Multi Academy Trust. As part of a Multi Academy trust, we are able to work with and learn from colleagues, leading to a supportive environment for all our pupils.
As such we adopt a ‘whole school approach ‘ to special education needs which involves all staff adhering to a model of good practice. We have many tools and strategies to help us with this including ICT, intervention lessons taught by a teacher and Teaching Assistants.
Our MAT team of dedicated Teaching Assistants have substantial knowledge and practical experience of working with children with a range of SEND needs. Our SENDCo, Mrs R McHale has achieved the National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordination. Our Acting Head of School, Suzy Dyter is also a trained SENDCo and so works to support all Senior Leaders at St Martin’s.
