Special Educational Needs


Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Philosophy

At Our Lady of Good Counsel (OLGC) RC Primary School we treat every child as if they are own and as such we will support every individual to reach their full potential. We recognise that every child takes their own learning journey through life and as such not all children learn at the same rates.  With this in mind, there may be occasions where children need some additional support in order assist them on their journey. We offer a graduated approach in supporting children with SEND. It is important that we practise a holistic approach towards all our children and our Catholic foundations support this care and compassion for every individual so that they can be the very best that they can be. We believe that all children regardless of having a SEN or a disability can achieve wondrous things and become life-long learners for life.  The SENDCO is Mr R. Outhwaite, who teaches in year 5, should you require any further information he will be pleased to help. The SEND link governor is Mrs J. Saunders.
