Special Educational Needs And / Or Disabilities (SEND)

“Staff at St. Issey use a solution focussed approach with all children in the school. This pragmatic and positive method draws on children’s strengths to help them achieve their potential.

The children of St. Issey are the life of our school, all decisions and developments are made with their well-being and success at the forefront of our minds. Some children find certain aspects of their learning challenging. Our Special Educational Needs policy is designed to support these children enabling them to overcome these hurdles and achieve the highest standards. We welcome all children to our school and will make every effort to adapt teaching and learning to support a child’s educational development. We have a skilled and dedicated staff that treat everyone as an individual and celebrate all achievements.

All classes are fully inclusive; support for children is determined by individual need and circumstances. We have high expectations for all our children and we aim to fully extend their academic and social development. Throughout their time at St. Issey children may receive varying levels of support according to their changing needs and circumstances.

Further guidance is provided within our SEN Policy and our Inclusion Policy, which can be found on the policies page.
