SEND Information Report

We at St Ambrose School will grow in the love and service of Jesus and fulfil our potential within a community where everyone is valued.

We strive to provide a fully inclusive education, driven by high expectations, irrespective of race, gender, disability or social status. This is delivered through quality first teaching and a wealth of knowledge and interventions to support our children to succeed. We take the time to really get to know and understand the children in our care and where needed, deliver a tailored curriculum for the children with the most individual needs.

Our children are encouraged to be self-motivated and to be resilient learners who take responsibility for the choices they make. We believe that this is a joint responsibility through a partnership with parents, staff and professionals. All parents play an essential and valuable part in their children’s education and we encourage their support.

The progress of all children is monitored closely by class teachers, the SENDCo and senior leaders. Children who are not making expected progress are quickly identified and are given support through quality first teaching and interventions to enable them to catch up in line with Stockport’s Entitlement Framework. If a child continues to work below their year group expectations or makes little progress, despite support given, they may be identified as having Special Educational Needs. See our SEND identification process in our easy to follow flow chart by clicking here.

So that information is easily accessed and user friendly, we have structured the information around how we support children with Special Education Needs or Disabilities through a set of frequently asked questions.

Your questions answered:

What are special educational needs?

What should I do if I think my child may have special educational needs?

How does the school know if children needs any extra help?

How are decisions made about the type and level of support my child many need?

How will school staff support my child?

How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs?

How will school work with other professionals in order to support my child?

Where can I find more information about the support available to my child?

If you have any concerns regarding special educational needs, please speak to your child’s class teacher as a first port of call. Further support can then be sought from Mrs Knight, the SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator). 

Appointments can be made by contacting the school office on 0161 480 8466.
