Welcome to our SEND and AEN pages, providing information on the support we provide for students who have Special and Additional Educational Needs or Disabilities. We hope you will enjoy reading about the variety of ways in which St Mary's and St John's School is able to support students with SEND and AEN to reach their full potential.
At SMSJ School we believe that every child matters and during their journey with us we will ensure that they are happy, safe and enjoy their learning. If at any time problems arise, they will be dealt with promptly and in partnership with students and their parents/carers.
We are committed to ensuring that all students make good progress. This may involve providing additional small group support before and/or after school plus additional help within the school day, individually or in a small group, focusing on individual needs. All students with special educational needs, whether physical, intellectual, social or emotional, are, wherever possible, fully integrated into our schools and have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
We offer a warm, nurturing learning environment to all our students and our team of staff is dedicated to supporting vulnerable students. We actively encourage parents/carers to get involved in their child’s learning and in School life generally.
In order to ensure effective person-centred support, all our SEND students have an identified key person who is the main link between family and the school. We are proactive in ensuring that all students attend school and that any barriers to attendance are effectively overcome.
We work with students with a range of SEND and endeavour to ensure that teaching and learning, the curriculum, and achievement meets the needs of all students and prepares them for life beyond SMSJ School.
