Inclusion: Special Education Needs and Disabilities Information

St Anne’s is a ‘Learning Without Limits’ School where everyone is trusted, included and welcome. We believe that all children can become more powerful, committed and successful learners when given distinctive supportive conditions and generous opportunities for learning. We know that children thrive best in a nurturing environment where all their achievements are valued and celebrated.

Our SENCo / Inclusion Leader is Mrs Di Martin.  She is contactable via the school offices and is available by appointment, for parent consultations. Contact Di Martin   Diane.martin@saca.theplt.org.uk

If you have concerns about your child’s progress at school regarding any of the following: reading, writing, maths, social and emotional development, behaviour, communicating, physical or sensory; the first person to speak to about your concerns would be your child’s class teacher.  If you still have on going concerns you may wish to speak to the school’s SENCo.

If any educational needs are identified, Mrs Martin will plan how to provide support for your child with the involvement of both yourself and the class teacher and outside agencies as appropriate.  If additional support is needed, Mrs Martin will access this for you and record your child’s progress through their Learning Passport. Parents/carers are offered the opportunity to meet with their child’s class teacher twice a year at Parents’ Evenings to discuss their progress but teachers are always available, please make an appointment to discuss any concerns.

Mrs Few is our Learning Mentor @Hewish and Miss Hockey is our Learning Mentor @West Wick. ( Mrs Davidson and Mrs Atkinson are currently sharing this role )  They are available to meet with parents/carers to discuss any social and emotional issues which  may be affecting their child’s ability to learn.  They can work with small groups and/or with individual children depending on the child’s specific needs.  Appointments can be arranged via the school offices.

If you still have concerns that your child’s needs are not being met, please do speak to the Principal.
