Addvanced Solutions Courses for parents this half term - What_s_On_in_Liverpool_Summer_Half_Term_2021.01.pdf

Pupils with an identified Special Educational Need and/or Disability (SEND) at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Infant and Nursery School are fully included in all aspects of school life and are given appropriate support to access the curriculum to reach their full potential and succeed in life. Any learner may have special educational needs at some point during their time in school and therefore a wide variety of strategies will be used to meet the needs as they are identified.  Parents and carers are supported in seeking advice and implementing strategies they need to create an environment to fulfil their child’s potential, both in school and at home.

Miss O'Kane is our SENDCo and school mental health lead. She is responsible for special educational needs at school. All schools have a SENDCo and they work with other teachers and with parents to make sure that pupils with special educational needs get the right support and help they need at school

Please call the main school office on 0151 525 8489 to make an appointment to meet Miss O'Kane or you can email her directly at
