Special Educational Needs and Disability
Children have Special Education Needs if they have a learning difficulty that requires extra provision and support in order for them to access the learning. Children with SEND may need extra support or special provision made for them to have the same opportunities of other children of their age. This support may range from extra adult support, advice from external agencies (such as from a Speech and Language Therapist), specialist equipment, or they may benefit from small targeted group intervention.
Children on the SEND register will have personalised targets within their Pupil Profile, set by their class teachers and supported by the SENDCO. These profile targets are agreed with parents and reviewed throughout the year.
Below you will find our SEND policy with more details about SEND at St Joseph's.
