SEND Information


At Christ Church Junior school we ensure that all children; including those identified as having a special educational need have a common entitlement to an accessible, broad and balanced academic and social curriculum and are fully included in all aspects of school life. We strive to support all our children to enable them to flourish academically and socially. Giving them the skills and opportunities to reach their full potential. In order to do this, many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey.

Teachers use their professional judgements to effectively plan and provide for each individual child. This could be providing slightly different tasks for child and adapting teaching and learning styles to meet the needs of the children. We always do this but sometimes this is not enough and a child may require additional support. Within classes children often need some extra support and/ or challenge to consolidate their learning and to enable them to access the curriculum at an appropriate level. All of our children at CCJ are valued and their self-esteem promoted.  We work in close partnership with parents and carers, who play an integral, active and valued role in their child’s education.

The person in school coordinating the needs of children with SEND is the SENCO Mrs Sadie Groves. You can contact her with any queries at

There is also a SEND governor Ms Sophie Flecken who supports the SENCO and her team to meet your child’s needs.

While we endeavour to meet the needs of all children with additional needs to the best of our ability, there are times when you may feel a complaint needs to be made.  If this is the case, then please follow our complaints policy.
