Support & Provision

At St Mary's Catholic Primary Academy we offer a range of support and provisions to assist all children and ensure all children are making progress. 

There are four areas of need identified in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014:

Communication and Interaction:

Children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) have difficulty in communicating with others.  This may be because they have difficulty saying what they want to, understanding what is being said to them or they do not understand or use social rules of communication.  The profile for every child with SLCN is different and their needs may change over time.  They may have difficulty with one, some or all of the different aspects of speech, language or social communication at different times of their lives.

 

 

Sensory and/or Physical Needs:

Some children and young people require special educational provision because they have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of the educational facilities generally provided. These difficulties can be age related and may fluctuate over time.  Many children and young people with vision impairment (VI), hearing impairment (HI), multi-sensory impairment (MSI) or a physical disability (PD) will require specialist support and/or equipment to access their learning and to have the same opportunities as their peers.    

 

Social and Emotional Difficulties:

Children and young people may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which manifest themselves in many ways.  These may include becoming withdrawn or isolated, as well as displaying challenging, disruptive or disturbing behaviour.  These behaviours may reflect underlying mental health difficulties such as anxiety or depression, self-harming, substance misuse, eating disorders or physical symptoms that are medically unexplained.  Other children and young people may have disorders such as attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder or attachment disorder.


Cognition and Learning:

Support for learning difficulties may be required when children and young people learn at a slower pace than their peers, even with appropriate differentiation.  Learning difficulties cover a wide range of needs, including moderate learning difficulties (MLD), severe learning difficulties (SLD), where children are likely to need support in all areas of the curriculum and associated difficulties with mobility and communication, through to profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), where children are likely to have severe and complex learning difficulties as well as a physical disability or sensory impairment.
