Our Vision for Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
At St Michael’s Primary School, we want everyone to feel that they belong and are respected and valued for who they are. Through effective teaching and learning, support and encouragement and working closely with parents and carers we have high expectations and aspirations for all pupils. We work together to remove barriers to enable all children to feel that they are a part of the whole school community, where everyone is able to make a contribution. Our aim is for all children to grow up to be respectful, caring, adults who participate and contribute to their community, economically, socially and culturally.
