Special Educational Needs (SEN)

St Mary’s Church of England Academy is committed to providing the highest quality of education for all children. The school ethos is inclusive and nurturing in order to allow children to explore their potential and to discover their strengths. The SEN policy has close links to all other school policies, in particular the disability and behaviour policies. It is the result of whole school discussions and workshops that reflects the beliefs and practices of all those who work at the school.


Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Policy (SEND) and Accessibility Plan, can be found in the policies section of the website.
