SEN Coffee Mornings 

During the summer term, we had our first SEN coffee mornings. It was brilliant to share all the hard work that our team puts into SEN at St George's, but also to get feedback and input from parents on how to move forward as a school. We discussed: accessing Provision Maps online, ADHD, dyslexia, Education Health Care Plans, SEN processes, SATs access arrangements and spoke about individual experiences and barriers. Next year I am delighted to offer three coffee mornings throughout the year. Themes will be shared in September, but anything can be discussed and isn't limited to the theme. 

Dates for the diary. Thursday at 9am on: 

10th November - ADHD 

I am pleased to announce that for our first coffee morning we are inviting in 'Audrey Eastwood', from Tameside School Support Services, who is an ADHD specialist.

Zones of Regulation 

The Zones of Regulation framework and curriculum (Kuypers, 2011) teaches students scaffolded skills toward developing a metacognitive pathway to build awareness of their feelings/internal state and utilize a variety of tools and strategies for regulation, prosocial skills, self-care, and overall wellness. This includes exploring tools and strategies for mindfulness, sensory integration, movement, thinking strategies, wellness, and healthy connection with others. The Zones of Regulation provides a common language and compassionate framework to support positive mental health and skill development for all, while serving as an inclusion strategy for neurodiverse learners, those who have experienced trauma, and/or have specific needs in terms of social, emotional, and behavioural development.

Statutory Information 

What is the SEN information report? 

The SEN information report is intended to tell you how the school's SEN policy is used. How help and support for pupils with SEND works at St Georges. It is your insiders guide to our school and SEN.  The report should be written in a way that makes the information clear and meaningful for parents. It is reviewed annually and any queries or questions are warmly welcomed.
