Special Education Needs and Disabilities

Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School is a fully inclusive school where we aim to develop in every child the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes that will enable them to reach their full potential. We believe that every child is equal, valued and unique and aim to provide a broad and balanced high-quality curriculum for all children.

Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) that affect a child’s ability to learn can include:

  • behaviour or ability to socialise, eg not being able to make friends
  • reading and writing, for example they have a difficulty such as dyslexia
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels, eg they have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • physical needs or disabilities

Our Special Needs Coordinator is Mrs Lilley and our Inclusion Lead is Mrs Wilson.  Please contact them through the school office if you have any questions or concerns.
