What are the different types of support that are available for children at St John’s?

In accordance with the Equality Act 2010 and the SEND Code of Practice 2015, the school will endeavor to adapt as much of the school day to meet the needs of a pupil with SEND (See also the Accessibility Policy). Medical support will be put in place where necessary taking into account reasonable adjustments.


High-quality teaching is our first step in responding to your child’s needs. We will make sure that your child has access to a broad and balanced curriculum in every year they are at our school.

We will adapt how we teach to suit the way the pupil works best. There is no '1 size fits all’ approach to adapting the curriculum; we work on a case-by case basis to make sure the adaptations we make are meaningful to your child. Please see ‘What are the different types of support available for children at St John’s’ which demonstrates what strategies are used to support pupils at a classroom level.
