SEND

SEND information about our school.

The Government has asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish, in one place, information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).

This is known as the Local Offer.  Further information about the Durham Local Offer can be found on the Durham County Council Local Offer home page which is on the https://www.durham.gov.uk/localoffer website. Click on the link to be directed straight to the information.

At St. Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.

Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEND.

We ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress. Most of our school policies can be found on the website or available on request from the school office, please visit our policies page for a list.
