St Teresa's Catholic Primary School


Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

At St. Teresa’s Catholic Primary School, Christ is at the centre of everything we do. We aim to give our children the best possible Catholic education providing them with exciting opportunities and learning experiences which will enable them to reach their full potential.


We aim to ensure that all the children in our care are equipped for life-long learning as responsible citizens in an ever-changing, diverse community. As an inclusive school, we believe that every child has the right to be happy, to be safe and to learn.  


Mrs Louise Moon is the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator at St. Teresa's. You can contact her via the school office.

Considering Complaints

Should a parent or carer have a concern about the special provision made for their child they should in the first instance discuss this with the class teacher. If the concern continues then the SENCO and class teacher will work together with the parents to solve the problem. If the concern cannot be satisfactorily dealt with at this stage it should be brought to the notice of the Headteacher. If the Head is unable to resolve the difficulty the parents’ concerns should be put in writing to the SEND Governor (Mrs Alison Jones) via the school office. The Chair of Governors will be involved after other avenues to resolve the situation have been exhausted.
