Special Educational Needs & Disability
Trust SEND Policy Statement
Our vision for children with special educational needs and disabilities is the same as for all children - that they fulfil their potential through enjoying, achieving and celebrating their learning by keeping Christ at the centre of all they do. That have high aspirations and are aware that they are known, valued members of their community.
We believe that all children have an equal right to an education which enables them to fully develop their personal, social and intellectual potential and become lifelong learners fulfilling their Christian mission and moral purpose.
We have a commitment to high achievement and we strive to provide all our children with a quality education matched appropriately to their particular needs. We see high quality provision as essential and believe that channelling our energies into working closely together as a family of Catholic schools to provide outstanding education will bring high aspirations into reality.

Middlesbrough's SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) is provided by local charity, MAIN.
SENDIASS at MAIN offers free, confidential and impartial help for children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities, and their parents. The service is there to help you make informed decisions around educational choices for children and young people with SEN. They will also offer help and support with related issues, such as health and social care provision, wherever possible.
It's very important that families are fully involved in their child's education. SENDIASS supports parents and carers in building and maintaining positive relationships with their child's school and the Local Education Authority, so they feel empowered and fully informed.
Children and young people can also contact us directly, and are entitled to independent access to the free, confidential and impartial service provided by SENDIASS.
Please see the leaflet at the bottom of the page which is available to download for contact details or click here for further details.
