Some children require additional support:
- for a short period;
- throughout their school careers.
At St John’s we have a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) who works closely with class teachers, pupils and parents in identifying, assessing and making provision for the special needs of pupils needing additional support. This work, and the provision made for these pupils, is monitored by the Governors. Staff attend in-service training related to the provision of special educational needs, and where appropriate, call on the services of external agencies in meeting the needs of pupils (Educational Psychologists/Speech Therapists/Emotional Behavioural Support Services etc.)
We aim, at all times, to ensure that every child is included in every activity. If any barriers to taking part exist, it is our mission to remove those barriers by taking any action necessary. When a particular group of children is identified as not achieving as well as other groups, extra provision is made whenever possible.
