Our SEN department works with students who experience barriers to their learning and those who may have difficulty accessing the curriculum. Our team of highly experienced teachers and assistants work with staff to ensure each student's individual needs are met.
Head of SEN/SENCO: Ms E Beaumont
St Mary’s College believes that all its students, irrespective of their starting point or the challenges they face, have the right to a broad and balanced engaging curriculum. All students deserve a positive experience of school life, including social events and extra-curricular activities. We strive to ensure that all of our pupils are able to fully engage in all aspects of school life.
We provide a range of support in order to facilitate this and regularly review what we do in order to ensure that we provide the most accurate support in line with the needs of the child, always paying careful consideration to the opinion of the child. Learning Support is additional support to assist students who might otherwise be unable to access a programme of study or who, by reason of their learning difficulty or disability, may require specialist support beyond that normally provided.
