At St Mary’s Catholic School we believe that each student should be given equality of opportunity to achieve their full spiritual, academic and social potential by recognising the uniqueness of each individual and providing a rich and varied learning experience for everyone. Each student is entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum which is relevant to their needs. The curriculum offered aims to give all students a sense of achievement and thereby help them develop confidence and self-esteem. All students are encouraged to participate in the social and academic life of the school. We aim to provide educational experiences that take into account the individual needs of all the students and are appropriate to them. We believe that parents and carers are true partners here at school, along with the many other partnerships that the school have in order to ensure that all students achieve their very best.

This policy outlines how we aim to ensure that curriculum planning, teaching, learning and assessment for students with special educational needs and/or disability (SEND) takes account of the type and extent of the difficulty experienced by them.
