At St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School we believe that every pupil should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We want all children and adults to be part of the inclusive learning environment that we strive to create. We place the highest value on high quality teaching for all children and actively monitor teaching and learning in school. We strive to create a curriculum and a learning environment that is flexible enough to allow for the needs of all children who are part of our school community.
Our vision and beliefs about the education of all children is firmly rooted in our catholic ethos. We believe in providing education for all and want to raise the aspirations of and expectations for all pupils of SEND. We focus on the outcomes for pupils with SEND and not just the hours or provision or support provided. We want children and young people with SEND to leave our school having achieved their full potential.
We have a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Mrs Gina Wright. We also have a SEND Governor, Mrs Marion Ryan. Our SENCO works closely with staff, parents and pupils to ensure the correct academic and pastoral support and provision is in place for each individual pupil and their families.
Children's Family and Well-being Team:
In July we welcomed Sharon Grimshaw from the Children's Family and Well-being Team (CFW) and two of her colleagues. Sharon gave us an introduction into the invaluable work and support that CFW provide to families. Michael and Chloe then gave us an insight into the numerous FREE groups/classes that are available to families, including 'Stepping Stones' and 'Colourful footsteps', support and classes for families with SEND children. Please get in touch if you require any information.
Please check our school newsletter and dojo for future coffee mornings.
In the Summer term (2023) we welcomed Anne Conchie into our school from ‘The Autism in Schools Project’. Anne carried out a walk around our school and provided useful feedback about how we can make our school even more Autistic Friendly. Anne then met with some of our parents to chat about the successes and challenges faced, by families with children that have SEND.
