What do people say about SEND provision at St Francis'?

"The SEN process is fast, helpful and I really feel involved. My child has improved." (Parent)


"He's come along in leaps and bounds." (Parent)


"I can't put it into words. The difference in my  child since coming to this school is unbelievable." (Parent)


"My child's writing has really improved and the sentences are so much better." (Parent)


"My child loves it here and has all the support he needs to feel more confident." (Parent)


"I can't believe the difference after two weeks. Thank you for all your support. (Parent)


"The Pupil Profiles give us all the information we need about a child." (Andy Atkinson, SEND Caseworker)


"Targets on the SEN Support Plans are appropriate." (Wendy Boyes, SENCO Advisor)


"There are small proportions of pupils who are disabled or have special educational needs. They are very well supported because their needs are identified early and staff respond quickly to provide necessary support. These pupils make good progress in line with others in the school." (OFSTED 2015)

How can I give feedback?

There are termly meetings between our SENCO and SEND Governor. At least twice a year part of this meeting is a discussion with the Children's Council about SEND in St Francis'.


We receive regular feedback from parents of children with SEND at during termly parents progress meetings, SEND reviews and through informal discussions when parents are in school.  In addition we try to get questionnaire feedback from parents/carers, often this is during a school event.


If you have any feedback you would like to give us please either contact the school office or e-mail us on
