Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND) and Inclusion information
Local Authority SEND information
At St George’s we are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that we are an inclusive school with the needs of pupils with SEND being met within our mainstream setting wherever possible.
The Local Authority has produced a Local Offer which sets out what’s ordinarily available in mainstream schools within Tameside and what provision we are expected to offer.
Further information of the Tameside’s Local Offer is available on their website. http://www.tameside.gov.uk/localoffer
Further information on our school's provision is available in our school offer. Link to School Offer
