Statement of Intent for Supporting Equality
At St Joseph’s RCVA Primary School we are committed to equality. We aim for every pupil to fulfil their potential no matter what his/her background or personal circumstances. We adhere to the Equality Act of 2010 and have ensured our school is as accessible as possible for pupils with SEND.
The school has a disabled access at the front of the main building and into the EYFS area. The school is organised over two floors and the upstairs is only accessible by stairs.
We have a disabled toilet.
Please contact us if you have any questions about accessibility
How we support SEND?
We understand that children learn and develop in different ways. Teachers and teaching assistants recognise this and use different teaching styles, resources and plan different levels of work in the classroom to cater for the various ways children learn. However, many children, at some time in their school life, need extra help.
How do we identify and assess children with SEN?
A special educational need can be a number of different things. For example, a child may be having problems with reading and number work, which can be helped by putting extra support in at school and by working in partnership with parents. It may also be due to a disability which makes it harder for a child to use the same educational facilities that the school provides for the majority of children. For some children this may be a temporary difficulty, while others may have a long term need for special help.
Pastoral Medical and Social Support
At St Joseph’s RCVA Primary School we consult with a wide range of agencies and partnerships to ensure the pastoral, medical and social needs of SEND children are met.
For some children it may be necessary to develop and share a care plan to ensure that all staff are aware of the medical or pastoral care that child needs.
SEND provision – Consultation with SEND Pupils and Parents/Carers
Our primary concern is that all children attending St Joseph’s RCVA Primary School receive provision that maximises their enjoyment and achievement.
Working with children and their families is key to securing success in this area.
The SEND children attending our school are aged 4 – 11 years therefore seeking their views about how we will meet their needs has to be age appropriate.
Frequently Asked Questions
When a child first begins school the amount of information presented to parents can seem daunting, especially if their child has SEND. We have published a number of FAQs posted by parents relating to our school and SEND provision. As your questions are asked, a response will be posted here.
Please contact the school to arrange an appointment with Mr Hunt (SENCO) if you require additional help or support.
