Inclusion, Pupils with SEND and Local Offer

Our SEND information report provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school.

The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated for the academic year 2022- 2023.

St Joseph’s recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them in order to support their special education need. Our school works tirelessly to ensure all pupils have full access to a wide range of activities through a broad and balanced curriculum and through the provision of activities before, and after, the school day where appropriate. Parents and carers are involved at all stages.

This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan.

Most of our school policies can be found on the website or available on request from the school office, please visit our policies page for a list.
