The Love of God - 20+ Bible Verses about God's Love

The SEND Code of Practice states that children have a learning difficulty if they:

  • Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age;
  • Have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age.


This may relate to impairments in;

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, emotional and mental health
  • Sensory or physical needs. 


At St. Anne’s Catholic School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils based on three principles: Setting suitable learning challenges, responding to pupils’ diverse learning needs and supporting children to overcome potential barriers to learning. Saint Anne’s Catholic Primary School values all pupils and celebrates diversity of all. All pupils,including those with SEND have equal opportunities to achieve and play an active role in school life. We provide a high-quality education to all of our pupils, including those with SEND, and do everything we can to meet the needs of pupils with SEND. 

Through successful implementation of our policy, the school aims to:

  • Eliminate discrimination
  • Promote equal opportunities.
  • Foster good relationships between pupils with SEND and pupils without SEND.

The school will work with the Local Authority to:

  • identify pupil's with SEND who require the support of external agencies
  • provide a person centred approach during review meetings
  • request SSPP's and EHCP's for pupil's with the highest need
  • ensure that provision best meets the needs of pupils with SEND
