The ‘Policy’ goes beyond the overview, and describes the school’s processes and provision in greater detail: the Aims and Objectives of the provision; the four broad categories of need; the ‘Graduated Approach’ showing the assessment and identification procedures; training of staff and the identification of key individuals; references to key policies etc.
The two documents together, with supporting appendices, give a full explanatory account of the inclusive programme offered at St John’s School. In addition, the ‘Information for Parents’ booklets provide further expansion of provision on particular areas of SEN.
Parents are encouraged to make contact with Mrs Ttofis, ‘Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator’ (SENCO) to discuss any matters pertinent to SEN, as described in the documentation, or to share their concerns about their child’s academic or emotional development. She can be contacted via the school office.
