St Catharine’s Catholic Primary School is a Catholic school with an inclusive ethos. Our motto is ‘Let Your Light Shine’ and we value the contribution that every child can make. Our mission statement cites that we aim to’ help each child fulfil their potential and do their best in all that they do.’ We are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress. The school seeks to raise the achievement, remove barriers to learning and increase physical and curricular access to all. All children and young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) are valued, respected and considered equal members of the school. As such, provision for pupils with SEND is a matter for the school as a whole. All teachers are teachers of pupils with SEND. The Governing Body, Headteacher, SENDCO and all other members of staff are responsible for teaching children with SEND.
