SEN Information for Parents

At St Martin’s School, we recognise the importance of supporting all children to achieve their full potential – emotionally, socially, physically and academically. We strive for inclusion, providing all children access to a broad and balanced curriculum where they can participate fully in all activities, irrespective of ability, disabilities, race, gender, ethnicity or social origin.

Kent also provide a range of services available which is called the local offer, these services are available by accessing the Kent website. Kent's Local offer is all about making it easier for people to find out about services available to 0-25 year olds with special educational needs and disabilities:

The admission arrangements for pupils without an Education, Health and Care Plan do not discriminate against or disadvantage disabled children or those with special educational needs.

Our SEND policy can be found at the bottom of this page.

SEMH Champions

Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Champions are identified adults in schools who have completed the SEMH Champions programme.  Children, for whatever reason, may encounter difficult life circumstances such as bereavement, family separation or low self-esteem. We are able to offer 1-1 ‘talk time’ or small group work using cognitive behavioural approaches to support our children’s emotional needs and well-being.  We can liaise with other agencies and schools to ensure the best outcomes for our children.
