SEN & Disability Provision

Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)

 
At St. John’s, we embrace the fact that every child is different, and therefore the educational needs of every child varies. This is certainly the case for children with special educational needs and disabilities. 
 
Many children have additional needs at some point during their time in St. John’s. This is not to say that these children will be performing below age related expectation academically in every instance. Additional needs may be related to health, emotions, behaviour or learning. We aim to identify and address these needs through our school’s inclusive practice.  
 

Key Contacts

The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) is Mrs Melarangi.
 
She can be contacted via the school office. 
 
Tel 0151 922 1924
 
The SEND Governor is Ms A. Williams
 
The SENCo ensures that all staff follow the SEND Code of Practice to support the needs of our pupils. This may be provided through carefully differentiated work, additional support by an adult in a small group, one to one teaching time with a Teaching Assistant or using specialist services from outside the school. 
 

Work with Outside Agencies

At St John’s we liaise closely with a wide range of outside agencies such as:
 
Educational Psychologist
 
Speech and language Therapy
 
SENISS (Special Educational Needs Inclusion Support Service)
 
Seedlings and Brighter Horizons (Supporting mental well being)
 
Health and Social Services
 
School’s Family Support Service
 
Occupational Therapy
 
Educational Welfare Officer
 
SEN Consortia
 

Personalised Plans

The SENCo liaises with each agency to review the programme in place for individual pupils. The specialist advice will be incorporated into a child’s One Page Profile where strategies and resources to use to support a child are recorded.
 
By carefully addressing individual needs we aim to ensure that every child at St. John’s is given every opportunity to achieve their full potential.
