St Thomas of Canterbury School and Nursery, A Catholic Voluntary Academy

St Thomas of Canterbury is a happy, welcoming Catholic school where children grow, flourish and learn in a supportive, nurturing community. It is a strong Christian community in which we live out the Gospel values of truth, justice, love, peace and forgiveness through our own core values of ready, respectful and safe.

Our mission statement, 'To nurture curiosity for every child, everyday, within a community acting as a beacon of the Catholic faith,' captures our aim to recognise each individual as a child of God while also offering exciting opportunities that will provide them with a high quality education and a love for learning that will stay with them throughout their lives. We have high standards across the curriculum and work hard to ensure we are putting the latest research into action in our classrooms to ensure the best possible outcomes for our learners.

We place a high priority on ensuring the mental wellbeing of pupils, parents and carers and staff are met. Every member of our community is well supported, valued and nurtured.

Staffing arrangements/training to support children or young people with SEND

At St Thomas of Canterbury School we believe in the importance of delivering high quality teaching in all lessons. We carefully consider and plan our curriculum and approaches so all children can access learning and thrive whatever their needs are. We recognise that parents/carers are an invaluable source of knowledge about their child and we always strive to truly listen to their views, and those of their child.  We work closely with a wide range of professionals to address SEND concerns, identify needs, and develop our skills and knowledge. We use our best endeavours to implement advice given. This will be for the most part within the classroom, but sometimes may be delivered in a small group or at times in a one to one setting.
