Welcome to our SEND Information Report, which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer for children and young people with Special Educational Needs.
At St Joseph’s RC Primary, we are committed to the equal inclusion of all pupils in all areas of school life. We recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. 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.
Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.
At St Joseph’s, we have appointed a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENCO to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
The information that must be included in our SEND Information Report can be found under the image headings or from the SEND menu. We will continue to add information on the website and welcome your feedback by using the on-line form
