Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
At St. Augustine’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, we believe that all children have the right to be happy in school and access a broad and balanced curriculum. We enable a cooperative and productive partnership with pupils, parents, carers and teachers to enable this to happen.
