At St Mary’s RC Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to
achieve their very best whilst at our school. In order to do this many steps are taken
to support them through their learning journey. Some children may need further
support to help them reach their targets and if this is the case your child will receive
additional help from other teachers and support staff in the school.
Mrs Potts is our SENDCo and she is responsible for ensuring that children
with SEN are receiving the specific provision they need. Mrs Potts will liaise with
staff to monitor progress and plan further interventions if necessary. We meet a wide
range of external agencies that are able to offer more specialised advice and
If you have any concerns regarding SEN please contact school and ask to speak to
Mrs Bates, in the first instance.
