Our philosophy is one of inclusion and we warmly welcome children to our school who might need extra support with their learning.
We aspire to have all children working and learning together and achieve this through the exceptional skill of our staff. By allowing our children to individually adapt and personally learn, everyone has an opportunity to access and articulate the full curriculum, in the same environment.
We understand there are times when children’s needs are greater and they may require additional support in the classroom, and occasionally there may be times when children have very specific needs, and programmes take place out of the classroom such as Speech & Language Therapy.
During their school career children may also need extra support with learning, friendships, or with expressing themselves and managing their emotions. They may have a visual impairment, a hearing impairment or difficulty with physical mobility. At St. John’s we are committed to including everyone, working together with you and your child to support your child’s needs, and in doing so enhancing both our school and local community.
If you have any questions about your child’s progress you are always welcome to discuss this with your child’s class teacher or Mr Tony Weir, our SENDCo (Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator) via 0117 353 2090 or firstname.lastname@example.org. By sharing information and knowledge, we can develop a good understanding of your child’s strengths and differences together.

The calendar on this Events page is a valuable resource for families in Bristol seeking inclusive events and activities for children with special educational needs and or disabilities.
Please find below Bristol’s Written Statement of Action (WSOA), and the Ofsted/CQC approval letter, published recently.
The Written Statement of Action is Bristol City Council’s response to the Ofsted/Care Quality Commission (CQC) Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) inspection which took place in our local area at the end of last year. It is a transparent, formal framework for improving SEND provision which has been developed with a number of partners and incorporates the views of parents and carers.
Ofsted require that the Written Statement of Action must be published on local websites, so that parents, carers, children and young people can understand the actions we are taking to improve the effectiveness of the local area in identifying and meeting needs, and improving outcomes for children and young people who have SEND.
