St John’s CE Primary: School Offer
It is recognised that all children may have educational special needs at some time in their primary education. It is the policy of St John’s CE Primary School to actively encourage the involvement of staff, parents and pupils in identifying and addressing the needs of any such children as early as possible.
Our policy is to make full and efficient use of the support staff employed in the school to raise the achievement of all pupils including those with special educational needs.
Mrs Nadine Galloway is the Special Needs and Disabiliities Co-ordinator .
Special needs are met in an inclusive setting in St John’s CE Primary School wherever possible, but withdrawal into smaller teaching groups is also practised. Some individuals may have Education Health and Care Plans in place (previously known as statements).
The Educational Psychologist supports the school to assess children's needs and provide advice. The Emotional Well-Being in Schools Team (EWIST) can offer support and advice for children with emotional, social, and mental health difficulties. There are close links with health services, such as speech therapists and occupational health. Advisory teacher input is sought when appropriate.
The School and Nursery make every effort to welcome and accommodate disabled pupils, and to provide appropriate facilities. All pupils are treated equally, regardless of disability, race, gender or religion.
