As a Catholic school we provide an education through which students recognise the dignity of the person and equality of all. We achieve this through establishing a caring community where the uniqueness of each student is acknowledged and their abilities, aptitudes and gifts are developed to the full. We are an inclusive school. We work hard to enable all our pupils to aim high and achieve to the best of their ability. We make every effort to meet the individual needs of our students and to include them fully in the life of the school.
We believe that your child’s learning needs will first be met through the high quality teaching delivered by her/his subject teacher. Children with Special Educational Needs are taught alongside other pupils. Some subjects are set according to ability whilst others are taught in mixed-ability groups. Lessons are ‘differentiated’ so that different pupils may have adjusted work or different goals set for each lesson.
We believe it is very important for parents/carers to be involved in all areas of their child’s learning and we actively encourage discussions. We believe, where appropriate, that it is essential to understand your child’s views on any difficulties they may experience with their learning. You will be able to share your views and discuss your child’s progress at regular meetings with the subject teachers and form tutor. If your child has a Statement of special educational need or an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) you and your child will be able to share your views at the Annual Review
