Special Educational Needs

SEND

 

At Sacred Heart, we want all of our children to feel that they are a fully included and valued member of our school community. We recognise that all children are unique individuals and endeavour to enable each child to achieve their full potential, whatever their ability or specific need by providing equal opportunities for all within our school.

 

A requirement for local authorities to publish a 'Local Offer' of services for disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs. Further information on the Hertfordshire County Council Local Offer can be found using the following link:

Local Offer at Sacred Heart Catholic School

 

Sacred Heart offers a broad and balanced curriculum which is fully inclusive.  In order for all children to access the curriculum they will benefit from differentiation and/or additional support.  A few children may require more precise individualised support.

 

We have provided answers to many frequently asked questions relating to what we offer our children who have a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND).

 

On this page you will find information about how children with special educational needs and disabilities are supported at Sacred Heart as well as local and national information you may find useful.

In addition, we regularly update this page with resources and links to help support children with their learning and mental health and wellbeing.
