INCLUSION 

Special Educational Needs and Disability - SEND

St James School is committed to bringing out the best in all children and this includes our children with special educational needs.

Inclusion is at the heart of all that we do. Our skilled staff are dedicated to providing the best possible support for children with SEND and, to achieve this, we work closely with pupils, parents/carers and outside agencies.

We believe that all children should have access to a broad curriculum which gives them the opportunity to realise their full potential and achieve success. For some children, this involves additional support delivered through targeted interventions. We provide a range of support and interventions to meet a variety of needs.

Our Provision Map shows the provision available in the four main areas of development;

  • Cognition and Learning
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Emotional, Mental and Social Health
  • Physical and Sensory

Some children have long term needs and will be supported by an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Nicola Berrill. She can be contacted via the school office on 01252 703248 or via email senco@st-james-elstead.surrey.sch.uk.

If you would like to know more about the education, health and social care services and provision available to children with SEND in Surrey, please see Surrey's Local Offer.

Provision Map

Wave 1

Teaching is planned at an appropriate level so that all children can make progress from their starting points and achieve success. Whole class work will be differentiated to meet the needs of all learners.

Wave 2

If a child is not making progress in line with their peers, additional support or intervention may be needed.

Wave 3

If additional support has not accelerated learning, then a more personalised approach is taken.
