Special Educational Needs and Disability
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, our aim is to enable all of our children to have access to a balanced and broad curriculum to enable them to achieve their full potential. We believe that high quality teaching is vital for all; however, for some children there are occasions when further, additional support may be needed to help them make progress.
‘All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:
- Achieve their best;
- Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and;
- Make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.’
SEND Code of Practice 2015.
At St Joseph’s Primary School, the majority of students will learn and progress well within the mainstream curriculum. Those who do not may have special or additional educational needs that need to be addressed.
There are four broad areas of SEN need outlined in the SEND Code of Practice 2015 :
- Communication and Interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health
- Sensory and/or Physical.
Ms Maudslay, SEND Co-ordinator, works alongside your child’s Class Teacher and Support Staff in supporting their learning and progress. This support could be provided in a number of different ways; working in groups in the classroom, small group withdrawal work and 1:1 work. If you would like to contact Ms Maudslay, her e-mail address is: email@example.com
In order to meet the needs of your child we may, with your full consent, ask other services and professionals for their support. These services may include the Educational Psychologist, the Behaviour Advisory Teacher, a Speech and Language Therapist and the Sensory and Physical Support Service (SAPTS).
