Special Educational Needs and/or Disability

St Matthew’s aims to be an inclusive school which caters for the needs of all children.

Our approach to meeting the needs of children with special educational needs and disability helps us to meet important school aims:

  • To provide equal opportunities for all

  • To foster respect for, and understanding of, the differences between individuals

  • To maintain high expectations of all children

  • To teach each child according to his or her strengths, aptitudes and needs

  • To create an environment in which children feel safe, secure and happy, in which they are listened to, and in which their views are respected

  • To work in close partnership with parents and carers, and to maintain effective two-way communication with parents and carers

All local authorities publish their information about the services they expect to be available in their area for children and young people aged 0 – 25 who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. This is known as the “local offer” and also the Local Offer provided by Cambridgeshire Local Authority.
