One Excellence SEND Policy
At St Mark’s Primary School, we have a six place additionally resourced provision (EMS – Enhance Mainstream School) which caters for children who have a Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) need.
Places within the SEMH provision are commissioned by the Local Authority and spaces are allocated by a central panel who meet monthly. The base accommodates children across the Stockton on Tees Borough.
The small setting provides children with the opportunities to access learning in a small group setting designed for children with SEMH needs. The SEMH provision is involved in all areas of school life at St Mark’s and it aims to promote inclusivity and opportunities for re-integration into mainstream education at all times. The SEMH setting provides a safe and happy environment where children are able build positive relationships with staff and children, develop confidence in themselves and enjoy learning, seeing themselves as successful learners.
I like everything in the Base, it’s the best thing about school – pupil voice from a child in our provision
