Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At St. John's we are committed to providing a high quality education to all the children living in our local area. We believe that all children, including those identified as having a special educational need or a disability (SEND), have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

Our Aims

Every teacher at St. John’s is a teacher of pupils with SEND and therefore teaching such children is a whole school responsibility.   At St. John’s, we believe that all our pupils are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:

  • Achieve their best
  • Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives
  • Make a successful transition to adulthood, whether that is employment, training or further and higher education.

Our aim at St. John’s is to ensure that these things happen. In order to achieve this aim, we will:

  • Use our best endeavours to make sure that a pupil with SEND gets the support they need.
  • Ensure that a pupil with SEND engages in activities alongside those pupils who do not have SEND.
  • Designate a teacher to be responsible for co-ordinating SEND provision (the Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator - SENDCO).
  • Inform parents/carers when special educational provision is being made for a pupil.
  • Produce an annual SEND information report to be published on the school website.
