At St. Andrew's School we are passionate that we bring out the best in every child. Nowhere is this more evident than in the way that we support children with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) through our policies & practices.
Please read the attached documents to see how we achieve this, and providing you with any further information you may need for your child.
You will also find information about particular SEND events or workshops that we have run.
I am an experienced Teacher & have gained the National SENCo Award. My SENCo days are Mondays & Wednesdays and I can be contacted either through email: SENCO@st-andrews-pri.oxon.sch.uk or by telephone 01865 762396 if you wish to make a time to discuss your child.

Mindfulness for Children
Mindfulness involves paying more attention to what is happening right now with an attitude of curiosity and kindness. By learning to focus a little more on what is happening now and how we are feeling, we can learn to manage day to day difficulties and enjoy ourselves more.
Caroline King, an Assistant Educational Psychologist shared the powerpoint attached , giving an overview of 'Mindfulness' and the research and evidence that demonstrates its usefulness in supporting children in schools. She also shared some mindful practices that can be done at home with your children, as well helpful apps and websites that provide further information.
