Inclusion – Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)


The Inclusion Team at St. Joseph’s works closely with all members of staff to ensure that the pupils achieve their best in all aspects of their development.

Children may need intervention for a range of reasons and in certain cases, we may draw up individual plans for children to support them in tackling any barriers to success.

We work in partnership with parents and carers to make school a positive and rewarding experience.

Please contact school if you wish to discuss policy and procedure with Annemarie Lithgow, the school’s Inclusion Leader.
