SEND information


At Ursuline Catholic Primary school we meet the needs of all pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Disabilities (SEND). We believe that cheerful, included, confident and motivated children work harder and make better progress. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey.

Our SEND provision provides opportunities for pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities to access a rich, balanced and progressive knowledge-based curriculum specifically tailored to their needs. We do this by providing our pupils with Quality First teaching approaches which give them the self-confidence needed in order to maximize their potential and develop skills to work independently. 

We provide support for pupils across the four areas of need as laid out in the SEND Code of Practice 2014:

· Communication and interaction

· Social, emotional and mental health difficulties

· Sensory and/or physical needs

· Cognition and learning

Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Miss Catherine Fitzsimons who can be contacted through the school office or by email at [email protected]
