How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs?


At St John’s, it is our duty as a Catholic school to recognise that all of our children are unique and should be treated equally.  They have a divine origin and an eternal destiny.  Our faith and our mission demand living out the Gospel values of equality, honesty, support and co-operation with each other.  All have access to the curriculum however, we understand that for some children, reasonable adjustments and extra support is required if they are to do this.
