Welcome to the SEND information page

At Our Lady's Catholic Academy we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve their full potential as we guide them through their learning journey. Quality first teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their learning goals.

 

The SEN Team consists of:

 

     Mrs G Lloyd- SENDCO
     Mrs J Smithson - SENDCo Assistant
     Mrs S Birks- SENDCo Assistant

Mrs Lloyd is responsible for overseeing the management of educational provision and progress of those children across the school identified as having a Special Educational Need or Disability. 

 

It is our aim at Our Lady's Catholic Academy to be as fully inclusive as possible for children with a variety of learning and developmental needs as well as physical disabilities.

 

If you wish to book an appointment with any of the staff above then please contact the school office.
