Our Offer

Introduction

St Alban’s is a caring community, with Jesus Christ at its centre.

We believe that each child is a special individual, deserving of love, care and respect.

Each person's dignity must be preserved at all costs since this dignity was created by God and is most precious to Him.

At St Alban’s we strive to educate others, and ourselves to reflect  on what might be the effect of our actions and words on other  people’s feelings and actions.

We aim to provide an environment where each individual member can continuously develop their own unique potential and acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to live a Christian / Faith-based life in the modern world.


Our mission statement is fundamental in all we do, including our work with our children with additional learning needs.

This document gives families information about the variety of ways we ensure we support our children with special educational needs (SEN) to achieve their potential. We provide a full range of educational and pastoral support to all and our children with SEN make very good progress.

The information here is general; each child is an individual and will receive unique provision and resources where necessary.

If you would like further information, or a chat, please contact our SENCO by email maria.duncan@newcastle.newcastle.sch.uk or phone on 0191 2625552.

There are a number of reasons why a child may be identified as having SEN:

They are having significant difficulty with their learning and making far less progress than would be expected.
They have a specific learning difficulty, for example dyslexia.
They have emotional or mental health difficulties.
They have difficulties with social communication and interaction.
They have sensory and/or physical needs, for example a hearing impairment
