Inclusion & SEND

St Mary’s is committed to meeting the needs of individuals and groups of pupils. 

We do this by ensuring that teachers are supported in providing quality first teaching for all pupils.  Learning in our school is well-matched to the needs of all pupils’ so that it presents scaffolding, challenge and a sense of achievement. 

We recognise that every pupil is different and that every child is unique. Therefore, some children may benefit from a personalised learning programme which may involve small group intervention.  This is coordinated collaboratively between class teachers and our experienced Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Carol Johnson. 

Every child identified with SEND will have an Individual Support Plan. This plan highlights the pupil’s strengths and areas for development. It is created with class teachers and the SENDCo and reviewed every half-term. We understand that not all pupils make the same rate of progress, Individual Support Plans celebrate small step progress of pupils and clearly identifies next steps in learning. 

We work alongside a wide range of professionals within the Local Authority of Kingston including speech and language therapists, educational psychologists, occupational therapists and colleagues from the health team.
