2. What kinds of SEND does the school make provision for?

At The Rosary Catholic Primary School we make provision for pupils with any of the following needs;


Communication & Interaction 

Children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) who experience difficulty in communicating with others.  This may be because;

  • they have difficulty saying what they want to
  • they have difficulty understanding what is said to them
  • they do not understand or use social rules of communication
  • they are on the Autistic Spectrum, including Asperger’s Syndrome

The profile for every child with SLCN is different and their needs may change over time. They may have difficulty with one, some or all of the different aspects of speech, language or social communication at different times of their lives.

Cognition & Learning

Children who find learning, thinking and understanding more difficult than their peers. They may;

  • take longer to learn important skills
  • find it more difficult to remember things such as the important words for reading and times tables facts
  • find it difficult to understand how to use letter sounds to read or spell words
  • need more time to think about their answers
  • have a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) e.g. Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or Dyspraxia


Social, Emotional & Mental Health difficulties

Children who find it difficult to manage their emotions and behaviour in a way that affects their daily life. Things these children may find difficult include;

  • following rules set by others
  • sitting still for extended periods of time
  • listening to and following instructions
  • understanding how they are feeling
  • making friends
  • dealing with their difficulties in a way that does not cause harm to themselves or others
  • taking responsibility for their actions

This may also include children suffering from anxiety or depression, those who have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attachment Disorder.

Sensory and/or physical needs

Children who have a disability that may make it difficult for them to manage their everyday life without adaptations to the environment or support within school.  These difficulties may include;

  • hearing or visual impairment
  • physical disabilities
  • motor skills difficulties
  • medical needs



We understand that many pupils will have difficulties in more than one of these areas and we will always strive to meet all of the individual pupil’s needs.  Provision is continuously monitored and adapted to ensure that this is effective.
