At St Francis Primary School we promote the individuality of all our children, irrespective of ethnicity, attainment, age, disability, gender or background. We are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve the highest standards.

We follow the Mainstream Core Standards on how to adapt the curriculum and the learning environment in order to meet the needs of every child. Class Teachers receive regular training and support in order to ensure access for all pupils through a suite of tools. We are committed to providing enjoyable, engaging and stimulating learning experiences which will enable all pupils to be successful.

Special Educational Needs at St Francis

St Francis has adopted the SEN Code of Practice as policy and believes that all young people with SEN or disabilities should reach their full potential in school and should be fully supported in making a successful transition to Secondary School.  Pupils who are identified as having special educational needs may be supported on an individual basis, in small groups or within the class through the differentiation of the curriculum.

The SENCO, Mrs Denise Frost works with class teachers and other agencies e.g., Specialist Teaching and Learning Services, Educational Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Health and Paediatric Services to identify pupils’ special educational needs and advise class teachers and parents.

We believe that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit the school.
