Support for SEND during the period of school closure
Welcome back, I hope you have all had a lovely Easter.
I thought I would share a little video of my Easter fun.
I have also updated the page below with the latest resources I have and I've created an archived section for the resources I shared before Easter.
Please get in touch if there is anything I can help with
The activities below aim to reassure young people (and their families around them) as they live through these unsettling times. They are designed to encourage self-care and support wellbeing, but importantly to be fun and engaging.

South Glos Parents & Carers have created a bank of resources to be used for pupils with SEND.
At St Mary’s Primary, we aim to provide the best education possible for all children, regardless of their starting point or disability. We work closely with parents and carers, recognising the important role they play in their child’s education. Sometimes children need extra support and there are systems in school to make sure that this support helps them thrive in school.
Any questions please contact Claire Adams our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo)
I am available on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
