Welcome to our school SEND page.  Here you will find lots of activities and links to help you continue with your learning at home.  We hope you are keeping safe and well!

This page will be updated at least weekly, so don't forget to look out for new activities to keep your minds and bodies occupied.  Text messages will be sent each time the page has new information and things to do. 

We know that our SEND pupils all have a range of needs, therefore we are providing a whole range of resources for you to choose from. We would love to hear from you and see what you are getting up to at home, so don't forget to send your photos or videos to our new superhero email address: superheroes@burleystmatthias.co.uk and these will be shared on your class pages. 

In the meantime, take care and stay safe, 

Miss Fletcher
