SEND and Inclusion

At St Cecilia's, we believe that every child is entitled to an broad and balanced curriculum. Our culture of high expectations is ambitious for all our children, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, to reach their full potential. Therefore, our staff team aim to create a caring, friendly and nurturing environment where all children thrive socially, personally and academically.
Special Education Needs or Disabilities (SEND) is a term used to describe children who have additional needs in one of the following areas of their development:
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and learning
- Social and emotional health
- Sensory and/or physical difficulties
The SENDCo and class teacher meet regularly with parents to ensure they are informed of the progress and next steps in development for their child. 
Our SENDCo (Special Education Needs and Disabilities Co-Ordinator) Inge Taylor is based in school on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings and can be contacted via the school office or by emailing
