Mrs Kate Devitt

Assistant Headteacher & SENCo


Hi, Mrs Devitt here.

I though I would introduce myself to those who don't know me. I am the Assistant Headteacher at Stoneydelph Primary School and have been working here since 2012. I began the job as SENCO in 2015 and completed my SENCO Award in 2016. Prior to working at Stoneydelph, I was at a Frist school in Uttoxeter and a Primary in Nottingham, all in all I've been in and around teaching for the last 16 years or so.

I work in school Monday through to Wednesday and I am available for any parent to contact through Dojo or by email at k.devitt@stoneydelph.staffs.sch.uk. I offer SEND drop in sessions once a term, but if you need to see me at any other time please just let me know and I will always work to find a space in my diary. I hope you find the information on this page useful and if you need any more help please just get in touch!

We support the learning of all our children through first quality teaching and adaptive teaching. This means that learning activities are planned according to the level the child is working at so that they can make progress and adjustments can be made to support them whilst they learn.

The school follows a graduated approach to meeting learning difficulties has been designed so that parent/carers will be informed if their child has been identified as requiring additional support.

The SENCO, Mrs Devitt, will make sure that all necessary school staff are aware of your child’s needs and monitor how to support them. 

If your child has been identified with extra educational needs, a Support Plan will be written with the teacher and shared with you and your child.

If your child has medical needs, a care plan and pupil profile will be written and shared with you.

All staff have access to these plans. The plans identify how your child should be helped to succeed and make progress. These plans will be reviewed regularly.

We encourage all of our pupils to be fully engaged in all aspects of school life, including trips, visits, enrichment opportunities and extra-curricular activities. We provide additional resources, staff and adjustments to ensure we do everything possible to ensure all children have access to the full curriculum and extra-curricular offer.
