Inclusive learning means accommodating, recognising and meeting the learning needs of all children; this includes our more able pupils. It is also acknowledging that pupils have a category of individual learning needs and are diverse community members with an entitlement of outstanding education.
St. Joseph's school aims to meet the need of every individual, taking into consideration their cultural background, in order to enable each child to progress in their learning, personal and social development, and to develop their full potential in an appropriate way. Children have full access to a broad and balanced curriculum to achieve their best, become confident individuals and develop the tools to make a successful transition into secondary education and adulthood.
Our SEND provision aims to meet our duties as a mainstream school in relation to identifying and supporting all children with Special Educational Needs (SEND) and to liaise with parents to help each child reach their full potential.
The new Special Educational Need/Disability Code of Practice 2014, brought about some new structural changes to how St. Joseph's presents information for parents and how we meet the needs of children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities within our school.
