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 SEND Report below answers questions that you may have about our local offer and SEND provision. Our SEND Policy, Equalities Information and the Accessibility Plan are available on our policies page.
The local offer provided by Bristol City Council can be found at:
Partners across the Bristol local area are working together and with parents and carers to improve services and provision for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We want as many parents, carers and young people as possible to let us know about their experiences of the SEND system in Bristol. We need to know what they would like to see improved and what is working well, to help us make the significant changes needed across the local area.
As such we are running an on-line SEND survey for parents and carers of children and young people with SEND, it will be open until 20 March 2020.
The survey for parents and carers of children and young people with SEND can be found at www.bristol.gov.uk/SENDparentcarersurvey
After the survey closes we will publish a report that sets out what parents have told us and how we will use that information to improve all areas of the SEND system in Bristol. We will run the surveys every six months to make sure that the actions we are taking are having a positive impact and improving the experience of all children and young people with SEND and that of their parents and carers.
