At St. Catherine’s we want every child to:


  • Be the best that they can be
  • Improve their independence
  • Develop as a rounded individual able to make a contribution to their community
  • Feel valued, included and motivated to learn
  • Enjoy school
  • Make academic progress
  • Experience a range of successes and develop a positive sense of self


To achieve this:


All children receive high quality teaching of a broad and balanced curriculum in an inclusive classroom environment. According to their needs, children will also have access to:


  • In-class support from teaching assistants (TAs)
  • Catch-up programmes in literacy and numeracy
  • One-to-one or small group work with a TA or teacher focused on individual needs
  • An enhanced curriculum to match individual needs
  • Access to IT or specialist equipment
  • Support with medical or personal needs
  • Homework support


In a small minority of cases, additional support is required for a child to access the curriculum. In such circumstances, the school, parents and sometimes outside agencies assess the child, liaise with each other and work together to achieve targets that are reviewed frequently.
