SEND

Mrs Joanna Messenger is our SENCo. She is supported by our SEN Assistant, Mrs Claire Davies. If you have any concerns or queries regarding SEND at St Andrews please contact one of these two ladies who will do all they can to help you!

Claire Davies -  cdavies@standrews.dsat.org.uk 

Joanna Messenger - jmessenger@standrews.dsat.org.uk

Our Aim: Every single SEND child achieves their potential through quality first teaching that is fully inclusive, early identification, targeted effective interventions and specialised support from outside agencies (where appropriate) resulting in increased pupil engagement and progress that closes the gap and shows increased attainment broadly in line with national. We aim to do this within a supportive and nurturing environment, valuing each child as an individual and fostering a growth-mindset culture.

For further details about how SEND works at St. Andrews, please look at our SEN Policy and SEN Information Report below. These documents form St. Andrews' own offer of support for children with SEN and disabilities and this forms part of Dorset’s local offer.
