Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Disabilities (D) & Inclusion

Our Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator is Mr Peter Mooney.

At St. Patrick’s we are committed to providing the conditions and opportunities to enable any child with SEND to be included fully in all aspects of school life. Our vision is for all members of the school community to be respected and seen to have potential for improvement. Through effective teaching and learning, support and encouragement and working closely with pupils, parents/carers and professionals we can enable the fulfilment of each child’s potential.

Our experienced SEND Team support pupils with Education Health Care Plans as well as those children on the Special Educational Needs register. We believe that early identification if vital to engaging the correct level of support from outside agencies. We work closely with a range of professionals from Rochdale Borough Council, including:

Educational Psychologists

RANS (Rochdale Additional Needs Service)

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service
