Shine, Celebrate and Grow!

Inclusion and SEND


At St John’s, we strive to be fully inclusive, providing opportunities for all our pupils to meet their full potential.  We recognise that every child is unique, and can benefit from support in a wide variety of areas, be it academic, physical, communication, social or emotional as well as valuing the distinctive contribution that every child brings to our school.  

The range of methods that we use to support children in school is detailed in our Local Offer below. 

St John's Catholic Primary School Local Offer for SEND


Children across the school are currently enjoying: 





Sing and Sign 

Social and emotional activities in our Thrive area


We are also currently working on our ‘Winter Garden’ to be contributed to and enjoyed by our whole school.  If you have any spare outdoor Christmas decorations that you would be willing to loan us for the last couple of weeks of term, these would be very gratefully received!



Further information for parents: 

The local authority have their local offer presented as a ‘Rainbow Resource’ website, which provides information to families with a child or young person with SEND.  


The Thrive website has lots of useful information regarding the Thrive process used in school 


If you have any questions about special education needs, disabilities, or inclusion, please contact come and see me, Catrin Geeson, on or come and find me or Mrs Stone in the Rainbow Room.
