At St Martin's we pride ourselves in being an inclusive school, that recognises and celebrates everyones strengths and differences.
Through regular monitoring and assessments, we ensure we provide a secure, caring and happy environment in which all pupils can succeed.
Once a specific need has been identified, an individual SEND support plan will be created that will show how the school will help your child. This plan incorporates advice from specialist agencies, where appropriate, and will consider the best way to deliver the support. For example, this may be a mixture of in class support, one to one work with an adult out of class, special arrangements made for breaktimes, time spent with an ELSA (Angela) or the provision of special equipment. The plan is shared and discussed with both you and your child.
The provision is reviewed regularly to ensure that it is achieving the desired outcomes. The plan is not fixed and can be adapted as your child’s needs develop and change over time. We encourage the children to evaluate the interventions we provide and we seek pupil views at key times to ensure they understand the support and begin to recognise how it is helping them.
Our SENDCo, Mrs Hayes, works together with our class teachers and external agencies to provide support across our school.
We also believe in everyone's rights and ensure we fulfil our responsibilities under the equality act.
