SEN Admissions

The aim of St. Mary’s  is to provide the best education for all pupils by creating a happy and secure environment where every child is encouraged to learn and achieve their full potential. It is an environment where everyone learns to work, play and co-operate with others in a Christian, caring way whilst fostering links with the wider community. St. Mary’s recognises and accepts the needs to make all reasonable provisions for the admission of any prospective pupils with SEN. The school has had pupils with Autism, Dyslexia, Global Delay, Downs Syndrome, ADHD and food allergies as well as those who have had impairments in hearing, speech, sight and physical movement, including wheelchair users. Provision for these pupils has always been made in terms of medication, resources, specialist support, curriculum, teaching support and the physical environment. We have a Complex Needs Resource Base on site which is adapted through the delivery of its curriculum and the physical environment, including a disabled toilet with changing facilities. St. Mary’s cooperates with parents in the administration of medication to those children with medical conditions whose education would be severely disrupted e.g. asthma, ADHD, epilepsy.
