Special Educational Needs & Disability

 

At Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Primary School,

we are one family living and learning together in faith.

 

Our mission is to develop a Christ centred community which recognises Christ’s love in every person and reflect the gospel values in everything that we do.

 

SEN and Disability Provision

In line with our mission statement, which guides us to fulfil each child’s potential, we strive to maintain high quality curricular provision for each child regardless of ability. A proportion of our children may have special needs and we aim to meet their requirements through a flexible, appropriate and varied provision.

 

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

At Our Lady Immaculate, we embrace the fact that every child is different and therefore the educational need of each child will vary. This is certainly the case for children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Many children have additional needs at some point during their time at Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Primary School. This is not to say that these children will be working below age related expectations academically in every instance. Additional needs may be related to health, emotions, behaviour or learning. We aim to identify and address these needs through our school’s inclusive practice.

 

Key Contacts

The Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Brown.

She can be contacted via the school office: 0151 260 8957 or through email: admin@oliprimaryschool.co.uk

The SEND Link Governor is Mrs N Beattie.

The SENCO ensures that all staff folllow the SEND Code of Practice to support the needs of our pupils. This may be provided through carefully differentiated work, additional support by an adult in a small group or 1-1 through precision teaching. They may also receive small group or 1-1 teaching time with a teaching assistant or receive outreach support from specialist services in a small group or 1-1 basis.
