St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School policy for Inclusion is underpinned by the philosophy expressed in the school’s Mission Statement.


In St Anne’s we aim to offer excellence and choice to all our children, whatever their ability or needs. We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. We want all of our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community. Through the appropriate curricular provision, we respect the fact that children:

·         Have different educational and behavioural needs and aspirations

·         Require different strategies for learning

·         Acquire, assimilate and communicate information at different rates

·         Need a range of different teaching approaches and experiences


We work closely with parents, other schools in our consortia, and other outside agencies to overcome any barriers to learning that a pupil may have.


Any pupils identified as having a special educational need will be added to the school’s SEN register and will have specific targets set to support them.
