Provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
At St Robert’s, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed. We know that all children are unique and we will remove barriers to learning and deliver effective education for all children regardless of language, culture, gender, special or additional educational needs, or socioeconomic status.
Throughout a child’s education, he or she may face barriers to his or her learning. At St Robert’s, we seek to work with families to identify the best way to help children overcome these barriers, on both a short term and long term basis. We work closely with external agencies when appropriate to ensure that classroom practice is excellent for all our pupils.
Mrs Ward, the SENDCo, liaises with teachers and teaching assistants to provide the very best for children with additional educational needs, including Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and children who have English as an Additional Language (EAL). If you are concerned about your child’s progress in any area, please make an appointment to see your child’s class teacher or Mrs Ward via the school office.

The school endeavours to ensure that all its visitors, pupils and staff are not restricted in any way to access the building, the curriculum or the school environment. Therefore a wide range of policies and procedures are used to ensure there is fair access and inclusion for all within the school community.
