St Columba’s Roman Catholic Primary School has a named SENCO, Mrs C McGrady, who is a member of the Senior Leadership Team and named Governors (Mrs P Lee and Mrs C Bowkett) responsible for SEND.
They ensure that St. Columba’s Special Educational Needs policy works within the guidelines and inclusion policies of the Code of Practice (2014), the Local Education Authority and other policies current within the school.
This policy was developed in consultation with other SENCOs from the North Tyneside Catholic Schools Collaborative and developed in response to the 2014 SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 guidance.
The policy was written using NASEN guidance.
This policy was created by the school’s SENCO with the SEND Governor in liaison with the SLT, all staff and parents of pupils with SEND and has been shared with stakeholders, including governors, parents, and families via the school newsletter and website.
