At St Mary’s C of E Infant School we believe in fostering the development and achievements of all pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, with or without an EHCP. All teachers plan and provide experiences and activities that are appropriate and relevant to the individual needs of all our children. Pupils with Special Education Needs and Disabilities are encouraged to become increasingly independent and take responsibility within the school.
The school has adopted the Graduated Pathway and provision recommended by Gloucestershire LA. The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SEND-Co) is responsible for overseeing assessment and provision.
The name of the SEND-Co is Mrs Susie Ewles.
Mrs Ewles is happy to discuss your child’s progress with you and she is available most days. She can be found on the school playground before and after school and can be contacted by phone on
The named Governor for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is Mrs Emma Hammond.
Please refer to our policies on Special Educational Needs and Disability and Equality for further information. Our School Local Offer and School Information Report explain our SEND support and procedures within school.
