At St. Paul’s C of E Primary School we believe that every child should be given equal opportunities to reach their true potential. Through assessment and clear communication with all school staff, co-ordinated by the SENDCo, at St. Paul’s we aim to ensure intervention is offered to aid children in their learning, this may be in the form of one to one work, through small group work or support in a whole class environment. Children may be given an individualised education plan (IEP) tailored to suit their individual needs.


We work with a number of external agencies who come into school to give additional support to children and staff allowing children in our care to receive the best possible support. The SENDCo works closely with both agencies and parent so that we are able to offer a cohesive approach.


At St. Paul’s we believe that all children should be able to access all areas of a creative and innovative curriculum which will inspire them to achieve to their best potential and become strong citizens within our community
