SEND Information Report

Welcome to our SEND Information Page

Hopefully you will find everything that you need.

At Our Lady and St Joseph Brooms Catholic Primary School we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.
At Our Lady and St Joseph Brooms Catholic Primary School we have appointed a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children,  Mrs J Cruise.   Mrs Cruise works alongside the SENCO, who is Mrs Anderson.  They work together to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
At Our Lady and St Joseph Brooms Catholic Primary School we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
