We are all unique yet we share the same heart

SEND at Our Lady of Sorrows

At Our Lady of Sorrows we firmly believe in giving all children the best possible start to their journey. We endeavour to ensure that the needs of all children at Our Lady's are met to ensure that they feel safe, happy and secure in their school environment, enabling them to achieve their full potential in both their personal and academic development.

As a school we promote an inclusive culture where all people are valued and supported. We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum designed to meet the individual needs of all pupils, providing differentiated materials and resources to ensure barriers to learning are removed.

We strive to work in partnership with families to ensure that children are supported through effective and efficient provision tailored to the child's individual needs.
