Support for SEND during the period of school closure
I hope you are all keeping well during this difficult time.
I am aiming to update this page with regular information and helpful resources as and when I receive them.
In the meantime, if you have any queries or need to get in touch with me please email the main school email address and the office will forward all emails to me.

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.
