Welcome To Our New Website!


At St Margaret Clitherow Primary School Special Educational Needs and inclusion is always a priority. All staff and the Governing Body are highly committed to inclusion and the principles and aims that are outlined in our SEN policy. We work hard to ensure that provision is made for those who need it and that all children are given the opportunities to be the best that they can.

All children receive a wide range of balanced learning opportunities in order that they can achieve the highest of standards. Class teachers and support staff differentiate and personalise the curriculum to meet the range of needs and abilities of all SEN children in their classes. Within the context of a secure and caring environment we also aim for the children to develop independence and responsibility.
This is our SENDCo (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator) and Executive Deputy Head teacher. If you would like to see her you can make an appointment with her through our school admin office or contact the school on 01803 851647.
