Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Saint Thomas More’s Catholic Primary School is an inclusive mainstream school, with strong family and parish links. We strive to meet the needs of all of our pupils, providing individualised learning and embracing and celebrating each child’s individuality. Our aim is to ensure that all our pupils are “the best that they can be,” knowing their strengths and providing them with a well-rounded, child centred curriculum, with opportunities for all to shine. As a school we have an in-house independent Speech and Language Therapist and our SENDCo is a qualified specialist teacher of dyslexia. In addition to this, we are able to access the support of specialist teachers and an Educational Psychologist to support our staff in creating a targeted provision for those who require additional support.
Jesus Christ said ‘Let the children come to me, do not hinder them’ (Matthew 19:14) and at Saint Thomas More’s Catholic Primary School, this underpins all that we aim to achieve. We strive to educate pupils in such a way that no matter what their abilities or background they may reach their full potential as human beings. We look to overcome any barriers that might prevent any pupil accessing the fullness of the curriculum, opportunities, and activities we offer.
