Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

St Filumena's SEND Statement

At St Filuemna's we offer a broad and balanced curriculum for all children irrespective of gender, special needs, disability, language spoken, race, culture or religion. We strive for excellence and have the highest commitment to supporting, challenging and nurturing all children in school through quality first teaching.


We recognise that some children may need additional support to allow them to access the curriculum. We use a graduated approach to removing barriers to learning that children may experience. This will be initiated with the class teacher, supported by the SENDCO. We work with outside agencies and parents to ensure we provide the best provision for each individual.


Our School Information Report has more information on how we support children with SEND at St Filuemna's Catholic Primary School. 

Please read the Staffordshire local SEND offer

Please contact Mrs H Rogers, our school SENDCO for more information.


As a Rights Respecting School, in accordance with ‘The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child’, we promote children’s rights.


‘A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity and as far as possible, independence and to play an active part in the community. Governments must do all they can to support disabled children and their families’ – Article 23
