At St Vincent de Paul, we want all of our children to feel that they are a fully included and valued member of our school community. We recognise that all children are unique individuals and endeavour to enable each child to achieve their full potential, whatever their ability or specific need by providing equal opportunities for all within our school.
On this page your will find information about how children with special educational needs and disabilities are supported at St Vincent de Paul School as well as local and national information you may find useful. In addition, we regularly update this page with resources and links to help support children's mental health and wellbeing.
