St Giles’ Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Statement

At St Giles’ we offer a broad and balanced curriculum for all children irrespective of gender, special needs, disability, language spoken, race, culture or religion. We strive for excellence and have the highest commitment to supporting, challenging and nurturing all children in school through quality first teaching.

We recognise that some children may need additional support to allow them to access the curriculum. We use a graduated approach to removing barriers to learning that children may experience. This will be initiated with the class teacher, supported by the SENCO. We work with outside agencies and parents to ensure we provide the best provision for each individual.

Our School Information Report has more information on how we support children with SEND at St Giles’
