Our Local Offer

Local Authorities are required to publish a Local Offer. This will provide up to date information about the services and support that children with special needs can access in their local area. Schools also publish their 'School Offer' with details of their provision for special needs, which will then be linked to the Local Authority website.

Swindon's Local Offer can be found by following this link:

Understanding Autism



St Mary’s Catholic Primary School is an inclusive school.
St Mary’s views each individual child as unique and special.  We believe that all children, regardless of their learning needs, should be treated as individuals who have a right to an education that allows them to fulfil their academic, social and emotional potential. We believe that by providing equal opportunities, effective teaching and learning, nurture and encouragement we can support our pupils in becoming capable, confident and independent learners to the very best of their abilities.

Mrs Andrea Cull manages and organises the special needs provision at St Mary's. 

The person who leads and manages special needs provision is often refered to as a SENCO or SENDCO.

We have a governor responsible for Special Needs:

  • Mrs Luisa Weston
