Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Inclusion at St John the Divine Church of England Primary School

St John the Divine is a school where our aspirations and goals are the same for all children, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. We aim for all children to progress to their highest level of achievement.  At the heart of our school are our values which are rooted in Christian teachings.

We provide an extremely effective system of provision for all children which encourages aspiration and values them so that they are able to make progress and achieve.  A culture of excellence and high standards across the school is complemented by an approach which includes developing strong relationships with families and external professionals; providing quality teaching and learning for all; targeted and evaluated interventions and support and developing our staff in order to understand and meet the needs of all children.

The document below outlines our approach to inclusion and some of the interventions in place to support our children’s learning.

Local Offer of Support for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

As a school we work closely with Lambeth Local Authority within their guidelines on provision for children with SEND. These guidelines explain the way in which children with different additional needs are provided for within our school.

Regardless of their particular needs, at St John the Divine Primary School all pupils are offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to achieve their full potential and contribute to the wider school community.

The Local Offer outlines that provision we put in place to support children within our school. Should you have any queries or questions our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Miss Davis, can be contacted via the school office.
