Special Educational Needs

At Blessed Robert Sutton we are committed to ensuring that every child has every opportunity to flourish, grow in confidence and make the most of their individual gifts and talents. 

We recognise that every child is unique and different and that for some children they need extra support. 

We are committed to ensure that all students in the school, receive the support and challenge they require to do their very best. 

Who is our SENCO and what is their role? 

A SENDCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) is a teacher who coordinates the provision for children with special educational needs or disabilities in schools. 

The role of the SENDCo is as the expert in the school on all Special Educational Needs.   They will not be directly involved with every child with SEND, but will coordinate the interventions and advice the Pastoral Team on how best to support every child. 

The SENDCo will lead on all students with an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP). 

Our SENDCo is Mrs Laura Wilson.
