Mrs Joanna Messenger is our SENDCo. If you have any concerns or queries regarding SEND at St Andrew's please contact her on: 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.

Here's our SEN Handbook. It includes the processes our staff go through when a child needs some extra support.

The Educational Psychology Team have produced some guidance to be used with children and young people with specific vulnerabilities and SEND to support schools as their widen the school attendance welcoming more children back to school.

Dorset County Council are asking parents of children and young people with special educational needs and/or a disability (SEND) to sign up for their new SEND e-newsletter. The newsletter features important information and updates about support and services for children and young people with SEND.

 

The aim is that it will help them:

  • signpost parents to useful information, services and support
  • inform parents of any changes to the services we provide
  • get feedback on how we can improve our support and services

 

If you are a parent of a child with special educational needs or a disability, you can access this newsletter at  dorsetforyou.gov.uk/SENDnews
