At St Joseph’s, we are committed to ensuring that every child matters and will always recognise individual success.   All children are valued, respected and welcomed to the school whatever their additional educational need. We will support their learning and ensure they are fully included in all school activities, making full use of externally provided facilities where appropriate.  Children with special educational needs are identified early and interventions put in place to address their barriers to learning.  Most interventions are run by qualified and experienced TAs who are trained in specific difficulties such as dyslexia, autism and behaviour support.  Below is the SEN report alongside the Local Offer.  If you have any questions, then please contact:
Miss Natalie Jones (SENDCo)
