SEND and Nurture (Inclusion)
The school’s overarching aim is to encourage and nourish pupils’ intellectual, creative, spiritual and physical achievements in order that every child reaches their full potential.
At St Mary Redcliffe CE Primary School (SMRP) we are committed to providing a full and efficient education to all pupils and embrace the concept of equal opportunities for all.
We will endeavour to provide with the resources available to us an environment where all pupils feel valued and welcome.
If a child is identified as having special educational needs and/ or disabilities either by the school or by outside professionals, we will discuss with parents and carers the additional support and strategies that will be provided. The views, wishes and feelings of the child and their parents or carers are vitally important and we really want you to be as fully involved as possible.
Our staff work hard as a team to try and make school the best experience possible for children of all needs and abilities. If you have concerns about your child’s learning or progress, please make an appointment with their class teacher to discuss your concerns.
Sometimes parents/carers or school staff may feel it would be helpful to refer a child to another professional such as a Speech and Language Therapist. This is always done after discussion and only with parent/carers consent.

We often hold events for parents and carers such as coffee mornings with the school nurse on a range of topics such as anxiety, healthy lifestyles including sleep difficulties. Last year we also had events run by Bristol Parent Carers www.bristolparentcarers.org.uk and the FLORA team firstname.lastname@example.org.
Both of these organisations offer lots of advice on specific questions about your child’s SEND and where to get support. These events are open to all members of the school community and are valuable opportunities to find out information, meet other parents and carers and ask questions. Events are listed in the school weekly newsletter. Please do come along if you can.
All councils must publish a Local Offer. The Local Offer must inform you what support is available for families of children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) and what services are available across education, health and social care.
