Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

 

St James Infant School is an inclusive school.  We strive to support all children to enable them to achieve their best at school.  Some children will require extra support in school to meet their needs or to improve their learning.  This additional help will usually be provided in school either by staff or with the help of external specialists.  Our Local Offer describes the range of provision and support available to help identified children as and when appropriate.

Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENCo) is Mrs Jill Eaton.
