Our vision for children with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities at St Mary Magdalene CofE Primary School is:
that we will be able to instill high aspirations for now and their future selves by having confidence in their own strengths and abilities. All children with SEND have a sense of belonging within our school community, which supports them to thrive and feel valued throughout their school life.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Information Evening.
Thank you for coming to join us for our first SEND Information Evening for parents. Lots of questions asked. We will inform you of any future dates we have planned for this.
If you were unable to join us for this event, you will find a copy of the slides shared in the documents at the bottom of this page.
My name is Miss Lewis and I have responsibility for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) within our school. It is a privilege to support all of our children, parents and staff to work together to set high expectations, inspire, challenge, achieve and celebrate learning in our school.
As SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) I am responsible for managing the provision for children who require additional support. My role, in partnership with parents, staff, and outside specialists is to ensure that the specific needs of all children, whether they be social, emotional, behavioural, medical or cognitive, are identified and appropriate support put in place. To help your child to achieve their full potential we will always ask them how they think we and you can support them. We will make sure they are involved in setting their own goals and targets. If your child requires a Learning Plan, we will have a meeting with you and your child to ensure targets are shared and you are aware of the support in place for their needs
If you feel you need to speak with me, my details are below:

We wore our odd socks this year to explore how we are all different. We joined the global debate within our classrooms and got thinking about What does Inclusion mean?
