Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is:
Mrs Louise Chadwick firstname.lastname@example.org 486 2835
The SENCo ensures that all staff follow the SEND Code of Practice to support the needs of our pupils. This may be provided through carefully differentiated work, additional support by an adult in a small group, one to one teaching time with a Teaching Assistant or using specialist services from outside the school.
At St Christopher's we liaise closely with a wide range of outside agencies such as:
Speech and language Therapy
Outreach Support (Abbots Lea and Aigburth High)
SENISS (Special Educational Needs Inclusion Support Service)
Health and Social Services
School’s Family Support Service
Educational Welfare Officer
YPAS (The Young Persons Advisory Service)
Early Help Assessment Team

Our school nurse is Claire.
Claire no longer holds monthly drop in sessions in school, referrals are done through school and the nurse will arrange to see parents then. All referrals require parental consent and contact number. If you have any concerns about your child and would like a referral made to the school nurse, please make an appointment with the school SENCo via the office or class teacher.
Parents/carers can still contact the school nurse direct via this number:
0151 295 9700
If children's needs require them to have a pupil profile (pen portrait of the child), the class teacher will consult with parents, pupil profiles are reviewed termly.
