SEN - Special Educational Needs
Useful information for Parents and Carers
At St Mary's Catholic Primary School, we are committed to providing an inclusive education for all children, regardless of need, through a wide range of provision and intervention strategies. However, we understand your child's education begins at home. This page will offer you advice, useful websites or outside agency information to support you at home with your child.

Cheshire East Parent Carer Forum
Cheshire East Parent Carer Forum is a voluntary group of enthusiastic, dedicated parent and family carers.
Our aim is to work in partnership with everyone who can help improve the quality of life for children and young people.
Parent Carer Members will benefit from advice, training and the ability to ask questions of other carers and professionals, as well as attending events. Many of our parent carer members also say the benefit of the Forum is to have easy access to friendly, local people who understand what it’s like to have a child with additional needs and are willing to help.
If you would like to meet with Mr Orr-McGuinness (SENCO) to discuss any concerns you have, please contact the office for an appointment at email@example.com
