Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Beliefs and values

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is an inclusive community that aims to support and welcome each individual as a valued part of our community.  Although it may be considered that all children at some point in their education have individual special needs, there are groups of pupils throughout the spectrum of ability who have further and additional individual requirements.  We are committed to working for quality and equality of opportunity for all pupils. We believe that every teacher is a teacher of every pupil; including those with SEND.

St Joseph's Catholic Primary School ensures that all pupils are able to participate in the school's curriculum and where the curriculum may not meet the needs of the individual an alternative provision will be provided.

Latest News: The school is currently working towards achieving the 'SEND Inclusion Award'

About the SEND Inclusion Award

The SEND Inclusion Award provides a framework for recognising outstanding SEND provision in schools. It helps schools establish their strengths and weaknesses in terms of SEND provision and prioritise areas for further improvement and development.

The award also helps schools determine where current provision is having high or little impact on the progress and outcomes of pupils with SEND.

Following a process of self-evaluation, action planning for improvement and evidence collection, schools achieving the award can demonstrate to Ofsted and key stakeholders that they have achieved an outstanding level of SEND provision.
