Special Needs

We believe that all children should have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and have a right to an education that develops each child’s  aspirations and develops their full potential.
All class teachers and teachers of children with Special educational needs and disabilities are responsible through first quality teaching for meeting their needs with advice and support of the schools SENco,Teaching assistants and advice from external professionals.In school we follow the’ SEN Code of Practice’ (2014) that takes into account the ‘Children and Families ‘(2014).

At Sacred Heart we work in partnership with parents to ensure that pupil’s special educational needs are identified and assessed and that strategies are developed to meet those needs, providing a secure environment for the children’s educational, spiritual and emotional development. Regular meetings are held to discuss outcomes of individual pupils and review interventions and external support needed.
