Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Governors At St Albert The Great
At St Albert the Great, we endeavour to meet the needs of individual children, teachers and all those who are involved in our school community.All policies reflect our commitment to inclusion of all groups of children encompassing those who are able, gifted and talented, to those with special educational needs and disabilities. Many children will have additional needs at some point during their time at St Albert the Great. These may be related to health, emotions, behaviour or learning. We aim to identify and address these needs through our school’s inclusive practice. We want to encourage and develop abilities and talents so that each child leaves the school with a positive self-image and sense of personal achievement, allowing for their spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth.

The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) is Mrs Wilson. She can be contacted via the school office.

The SEND Governor is Mrs Alison Spice

The SENCo ensures that all staff follow the SEND Code of Practice, to support the needs of every pupil. This may be provided through carefully differentiated work, an adult giving extra support through small groups or using specialist services from outside the school. By carefully addressing individual needs, we aim to ensure that all children  will be given every opportunity to achieve their true potential.

We work in partnership with outside agencies such as:


Hertfordshire Local Authority

School Family Worker

SLT (Speech and Language Therapy)

Occupational Therapists/Physiotherapists

CAMHS (Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services)

Outreach support (e.g Woodfield School)

Health and Social Services

Educational Psychology
