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!

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. You can also look at other year group pages if you know that your child is still working to secure objectives and targets in another year group.

 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
