At St Mark’s Primary Academy we are committed to adopt an inclusive approach to meeting the needs of all pupils including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

We strive to create a sense of community and belonging for all our pupils. We have an inclusive ethos, which is underpinned by our Christian values and high expectations, suitable targets, and a broad, balanced curriculum for all children.

This is teamed with systems for early identification of barriers to learning and participation.

We are strongly committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND pupils. This may include short-term intervention learning programmes, after school skills groups and other learning interventions developed to personalise learning.

“There is a clear vision about how the school can meet the needs of these pupils so pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities are now making good, and sometimes rapid, progress.”
