Special Educational Needs

Welcome Message  

 'St Simon's mission is to work, learn, pray and play together  to fulfil God's unique plan for each and every one of us'.


At St. Simon’s RC Primary School we strive to ensure that every pupil progresses, and to do this we endeavour to fully support all children. As we take children through their primary school journey we strive to provide high quality teaching for all. However, for some of our children additional support is needed in different areas to assist them to make progress and reach their full potential. Where children are identified as requiring additional support, having a special educational need and/or disability, we aim to ensure that all staff raise the aspirations and expectations of these pupils.


Miss Francis is the school SENCO and can be contacted via the school office. If you are the parent of a SEND pupil and have any queries about your child’s education, please do not hesitate to book an appointment with Miss Francis.  


This page will contain information on SEN provision in our school and local and government initiatives. Please check back regularly for updates.

Support for our Pupils

At St. Simon’s RC Primary School we strive to ensure that every pupil progresses. We follow the advice provided by Kent County Council to ensure high quality teaching using the Mainstream Core Standards. We use these to support the adaptation of the curriculum and learning environment for pupils with special educational needs. We also offer a range of interventions to support pupils' learning where a need has been identified.
