INCLUSION at St Joan of Arc Catholic Primary School

“All the teachers in the school are teachers of children with Special Educational Needs.  As such St Joan of Arc adopts a ‘whole school approach’ to SEND that involves all staff adhering to a model of good practice based on a Quality First Teaching model. The staff of the school are committed to identifying and providing for the needs of all children in a wholly inclusive environment.  Inclusion is given a high priority in this policy, in line with the policies of Islington Local Authority.”
