Our school SENCO is Mrs Moger and she can be contacted Tuesday-Friday on 01752 365217 or at email@example.com
Although Mrs Moger only works 2 days a week at St Budeaux and 2 days at another Primary school within the Trust, she will respond to emails throughout her working week.
Our school aims to be a fully inclusive school community and to involve all members of the community in decision-making and policy development. We regard staff, parents and pupils as undertaking a joint enterprise to make learning exciting and positive for all of us. We are all members of a team working co-operatively to this end. The expertise of parents and carers is highly valued.

Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA)
Worrying or anxiety is a normal feeling that we all experience from time to time. It can even keep us safe from harm or help us perform in difficult situations. However, sometimes anxiety or excessive worrying can become a problem especially when it stops people doing what they want or need to do. Many children and young people worry about school. This is normal. Anxieties are part of life and learning to deal with them is part of growing up. However sometimes a child’s worries may lead to difficulties attending school. If your child has high levels of anxiety and does not want to attend school they may be experiencing Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA)
Please read the EBSA document to support your child around this.

Plymouth Parent Carer Voice (PPCV)
The Plymouth Parent Carer Voice (PPCV) brings together parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Plymouth.
PPCV is Plymouth’s official parent carer forum. They are a group of volunteer parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Together they work in partnership with our local authority, to help shape and improve the range of services in education, health and social care for families in the Plymouth area.
Parent Carer Forums like PPCV are run by volunteers and funded with a grant from the Department for Education (DfE). They receive this and other forms of support from ‘Contact’, who work in partnership with the DfE. They are a member of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) from whom they receive regular guidance and support.
