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.

SENCO: Mrs J McDonagh

SEN Governor: Mr C Taylor
