Special Educational Needs And/Or Disabilities (SEND)

Our pupils and their families are the centre of our school and everything that we do is with their well-being and success as our priority. Our school is a place where every person has the right to be themselves, to be included and to learn in a safe and happy environment. Everyone at our school is equal and treats each other with respect and kindness.

Our Special Educational Needs policy supports those children who may find certain aspects of their learning challenging, enabling them to overcome these hurdles and achieve the highest standards. We welcome all children to our school and will make every effort to adapt teaching and learning to support a child’s educational development. We have a skilled and dedicated staff who treat everyone as unique and precious, in line with our Christian vision underpinned by the Parable of the Lost Sheep.

Support for children is determined by individual need and circumstances which is a strength in our small and very caring school where pupils are seen as individuals and valued as such. We have high expectations for all our children and we aim to fully extend their academic and social development. Throughout their time at St Martin’s School our pupils receive varying levels of support according to their changing needs and circumstances.
