At St Joseph’s we believe as a Christian community that we need to be open to each other’s special needs whether they are spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical, educational or social. All pupils, regardless of their particular needs, are provided with inclusive teaching which enables them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are a valued member of the school community. We are committed to working with parents and children in order to ensure each child has equal access to the curriculum and is able to reach his or her full potential.

It outlines the process of assessing needs, planning and implementing support and reviewing progress against individual targets.
The Graduated Response link details how we meet children’s needs at Universal, School SEND Support and Specialist SEND Support.
