At St Helen's we are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils through the provision of challenging and exciting experiences. We celebrate their diversities and differences by embracing an inclusive ethos throughout the school. We recognise that quality learning takes place when we motivate pupils, promote their self-esteem and develop the skills and aptitudes they require to enable them to make their way as lifelong learners.


Quality teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional educational needs have been identified and support may be necessary to help them achieve their targets.


Where children are identified as needing additional learning or behavioural support, the school adheres to the SEND Code of Practice. We ensure that each child’s needs are individually and appropriately catered for, and that any relevant outside agencies are involved in providing guidance and support.


If you have any concerns about your child, the best place to start is by talking to their Class Teacher who will know your child well. If you continue to have concerns, I am happy to meet with you. I am in school every Monday and Tuesday. If you would like to book an appointment, please ask at the school office or contact me at:



Roles & Responsibilities of the SEND team



Mrs Le Mar 


As SENCO, I am responsible for the operation of the Special Educational Needs Policy and co-ordination of specific provision made to support individual children with SEND.

I also liaise with staff to monitor SEND pupil progress and plan further interventions where progress is slower than expected.

I regularly have contact with a wide range of external agencies that are able to give more specialised advice. Other SENCO responsibilities can be seen in the new Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.

If you have any concerns regarding SEND matters do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Arajs

Speech and Language Learning Support Assistant

In my role I support children who have Speech and Language needs in the school.

I assess them using a "Speech and Language" link tool which identifies specific sounds that the child needs to work on. I use familiar games and a multisensory approach to deliver the programme.

I have also completed the “Language for Learning” course which concentrates on the way language is learnt and the strategies to support children with language difficulties.
