Any child may experience a special need which may affect their learning or well-being. Children who have found lessons or work difficult can soon lose confidence and develop low self-esteem. Parents are encouraged to inform the school quickly if they have any concerns about their child.
Ms Uz Afzal the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) reviews the progress of all pupils every term with the class teacher. If there is a problem, then a plan will be set up to support the achievement of the pupil concerned. These plans are reviewed with parents at termly meetings. Parent partnership is very important and becomes even more crucial if a child is experiencing some difficulties.
St Paul's prides itself on ensuring every pupil is supported well in school. The school has many staff employed to support students in class and sets up projects with other schools and agencies to provide as much specialist support as possible.
