Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are well supported.  Leaders and staff work together to identify pupils’ needs quickly. Teachers know the individual needs of pupils well and work closely with support staff so that all pupils can access the curriculum. Pupils show respect for those with SEND. They support them and look after them. (Ofsted June 2022)

Holy Family Catholic Primary School supports children with special educational needs and disabilities that include:

  • Cognition and Learning
  • Communication and interaction
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health
  • Sensory and/or physical difficulties

“Holy Family is an inclusive, kind and forward thinking school that is committed to ensuring the progress of all children. There are high expectations, clarity in role and a collective accountability to ensure that needs are met as successfully as possible. SEND is led very effectively by the SENDCo who is well supported by the headteacher. Both have high expectations of children and staff and are brave in their decision making and rigorous in their implementation. The school prioritises quality first teaching for all children and professional learning is an entitlement of all staff. This is supporting them in being at their best. Leaders, teachers and support staff understand the Graduated Response Approach and know their role within it. Partnerships within the local area, including links with external agencies, are used well to provide specialist support. Children are at the heart of all decision making and the school is proud of its inclusive stance. An experienced and committed staff team ensure that provision for all pupils is equitable and effective. They work together to celebrate successes and address areas of development to ensure that children are able to be heard, cared about and supported to reach their potential. Despite the growing demands faced by school, it is committed to continuing to offer an entitlement for all children in the Holy Family community. Thank you for you preparation and engagement in this process – it was a pleasure to be in school for the day!” (SEND Audit  – Learn SEND Hub – Feb. 2024)
