Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS & DISABILITIES
At St Luke’s, we believe all children, whatever their additional needs may be, can achieve with the right support in place. We aspire to understand and meet the needs of every child in our school and we believe in achievement and opportunity for all children. We recognise the importance of high-quality teaching, high expectations and early intervention. Children are at the heart of what we do and we work as a team to support all children and their families to achieve ambitious learning outcomes. We value the positive impact that parents and carers have and see you as an integral part of this team. For children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), we use a graduated response based on a cycle of: assess, plan, do and review.
The Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCo) at St Luke’s is Mr D McGill, who can be contacted via the school office on 01604 592008 or at email@example.com.
We are passionate about supporting children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing at St Luke’s. We are a host school for Mental Health Support Teams in Northamptonshire and we currently have Education Mental Health Practitioners supporting our school who provide early intervention for children struggling with low mood and/or anxiety.
