At St Clare’s Catholic Primary School, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning regularly throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and have strong links with the Local Authority, Health Professionals and organisations within our community. Our environment at St Clare’s Catholic Primary School, is developing regularly and consciously to meet the needs of our pupils. We aim to continue to learn, develop and grow our understanding of SEND across the school to meet the needs of all pupils within our care.

In St Clare’s, we believe in the inclusion of all our children to fully access all aspects of school life. Our aim is to offer excellence and choice to all of our children, whatever their ability or needs. We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and in the promotion of positive relationships and self-esteem. We want all of our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community.


We recognise that children may:

  • Have different educational, physical, sensory, emotional and communication needs
  • Require different strategies for learning
  • Need a range of different teaching approaches and experiences
  • Acquire, assimilate and communicate information at different rates and through different methods
  • Have a range of different hopes and aspirations


We work closely with parents, other schools in our consortia, and a range of outside agencies to overcome any barriers to learning that a pupil may have and to provide the best possible outcomes.

All staff at St Clare’s work alongside pupils and parents to provide appropriate differentiation and support. We aim to ensure that all pupils feel valued and that their needs are understood.

Any pupils identified as having a special educational need will be added to the school’s SEND register.

A paper copy of the schools SEND Policy is available on request.
