St Gregory's Catholic Primary School ‘We love, learn and grow with Jesus.’

SEND Information

All children at St Gregory's Catholic Primary school receive high quality teaching. Teachers have high expectations and plan carefully, providing lessons that suit the range of needs and abilities in their class because children learn at different speeds and in different ways.  We ensure that all children are given the help and support they need to learn. The help given will vary depending on the individual needs of each child. It may be support to develop academically, emotionally, socially or physically. Most of this support will happen naturally in the classroom environment and will be organised by the class teacher.

Sometimes children may have more specific or complex needs and need a little more support or something more personalised to help their learning. In this case a child will be identified as having a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND). This means that their learning and support will be overseen by Mrs. Caffrey (The SENDco). 


“A pupil has SEND where their learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision, namely provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age”  

(SEND Code of Practice p.82)


 If you have any questions please make an appointment to see our school SENDco, Mrs. Mel Caffrey via the school office.

It is intended to be viewed, discussed and shared widely by anyone but especially teachers and parents.

How others see you is not important. How you see yourself means everything.

One page profiles

A One page profile is an introduction to a child, capturing key information to help in understanding and appreciating that young person’s world. It often reveals information that may not be gathered in more formal contexts. It is a simple but effective way of considering provision from the starting point of the child.  It is a person centred tool for our most vulnerable learners that provides a way of capturing the uniqueness of each child, and what motivates, interests or engages them in their daily life.

Mental Health and Young People

Many aspects of today’s society can be bad news for the mental health of children and young people in the UK.  As they grow and develop, children have to navigate a complex and ever changing world, facing challenges and pressures in numerous aspects of their lives:

  • Family breakdown is widespread. 
  • There is so much pressure to have access to money, the latest toy or gadget and perfect lifestyle. 
  • Materialist culture heavily influences young people 
  • 24 hour social networking and what young people can access from a young age can have a negative impact on their mental health and wellbeing
  • Body image is a source of much distress for many young people.
  • Statistics show that bullying on and offline is rife.
  • Violence is rife in many communities and fear of crime a constant source of distress for thousands of young people.
