SEND

At St Joseph’s Catholic Academy, we strive for excellence and aim to help all of our students achieve their full potential. The school is a happy, vibrant community where students work hard in their academic studies and are involved in a wide range of sporting, creative, practical and social activities.

At St Joseph’s Catholic Academy, we believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.

The community is committed to the academic and personal development of all pupils regardless of ability. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and consider the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We provide the opportunity for all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, to make the best possible progress.

Full details are provided in our SEND and Disability Policy and SEND Information Report.

The provision at St Joseph’s Catholic Academy is part of the Local Offer which is intended to improve choice for families and will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
