Introduction

Our SEN Information Report – which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer – provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school.

The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated September, 2019.

At Our Lady & St Thomas RCVA 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 special educational needs or disability (SEND). Our statement of equality is simple: we strive to ensure ALL children do their best, irrespective of race, gender, need or background. Our school motto – You are unique, talented and loved by God – bears this out.
