St. Michael’s CE School – School SEND Offer
In line with the statutory requirements for Local Authorities to provide a ‘Local Offer’ for pupils with special educational needs and disability provision (click on picture below), we at St. Michael’s have also drafted a ‘School Offer’ (link below) which gives an overview of what is available for pupils who have specific special educational and disability needs at our school. This statement is reviewed annually in line with the requirements of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (Jan 2015).
Valuing All God’s Children
As a Church of England primary school, we understand the importance of looking after all of the children in our care through spiritual, moral, social, cultural, intellectual, physical and creative development. It is truly a gift from God that we get to educate so many wonderful children and we follow our vision to create a culture of inclusion through a safe and nurturing Christian environment. This includes affording pupils a sense of their own dignity and promoting that all children, and adults, are welcome in school and are loved by God.
Our Inclusion Team all follow the Churches guidelines set within VAGC and we are proud to be a church school where all children are made in God’s image and valued equally.
