How will the governing body meet the needs of a child with SEND?

How will the Governing Body at St John’s meet the needs of pupils with SEN?



  • School promote the use of SENDIASS, Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Information Advice & Support Service, to assist them in the process of requesting an Education, Health & Care Assessment and for other matters that may arise for SEND throughout their time at St John the Baptist.
  • The SEND link governors, Roger Coveney and Matthew Zarb-Piscopo, review SEND provision and meet with the SENCO to provide support and challenge.
  • SEND provision and the progress, attainment and wellbeing of our pupils is a standing agenda item each term.
