Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

At St John’s Church School, we pride ourselves on inclusive and personalised education for all children, with a supportive team in place. Our SEND team work together with the class teachers to organise effective teaching and learning for the children who have specific educational needs and/or disabilities. St John’s Church School shows its commitment to providing an appropriate curriculum for children with special needs by employing a Teaching Assistant in every class.
The school supports the LEA’s policy that, wherever possible, children with special      educational needs should be integrated into school.  The school building has a number of facilities for children with physical disabilities: corridor doors are wide enough for wheelchairs, there is a disabled toilet by the school office and we have a lift for access to the first floor.
If you would like to arrange to speak to an Educational Psychologist, parents can call the consultation line, to make an appointment. Appointments are offered on a first come, first served basis once a month on Tuesdays (during term time only) from 1pm to 4pm, on (01733) 863690.
