Changes in SEND Legislation and Our Local Offer

Local Authorities will be required to publish a Local Offer. This will provide up to date information about the services and support that children with SEND can access in their local area. Schools will need to publish their School Offer with details of their provision for SEND, which will then be linked to the Local Authority website.

SEND documents


St Mary’s Catholic Primary School is an inclusive school.

St Mary’s views each individual child as unique and special.  We believe that all children, regardless of their learning needs, should be treated as individuals who have a right to an education that allows them to fulfil their academic, social and emotional potential. We believe that by providing equal opportunities, effective teaching and learning, nurture and encouragement we can support our pupils in becoming capable, confident and independent learners to the very best of their abilities.
