Dear parents,

St Anne's continually evaluates provision for all children in our school.  We firmly believe that quality teaching and learning for all our children impacts most on children who need additional support.  All staff are committed to providing the best possible education and care for children with additional needs.

We have a team of highly skilled and dedicated professionals who work together to sharpen our practice.

As Headteacher, I hold overall responsibility for SEND.  This position is often referred to as the school's SENCO.  I firmly believe in distributed leadership and work closely with a skilled and committed team of practitioners.  Mrs Cleary, Deputy Headteacher, is responsible for the day-to-day deployment of all teaching assistants.  Mrs Dunn is the SEND mentor, and her role is to ensure all planned provision is provided, implemented and reviewed in a timely manner.  Mrs Crook is a specialist SEND teacher who assesses children using specific diagnostic assessments.  The outcomes of these assessments inform individual learning plans.  We also have a working partnership with a specialist ASC practitioner. 

Our SEND governor, Mr Glennon, works with all the SEND team to monitor and challenge all SEND provision.  Practice is scrutinised on a termly basis and Mr Glennon provides detailed reports to the appropriate committees of the Governing Body.
