Local Offer for S.E.N.D.

Welcome to our contribution to Wakefield's Local Offer for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive academy where every child, no matter what their need, makes good progress and leaves us with the skills needed to succeed during the next phase of their education.


St Joseph’s Mission Statement states:

“We aim to foster a caring environment where individuals value and respect each other and furthermore that we should positively encourage and enable the children to fulfil their potential”.

Therefore, the school believes that, in order to achieve the aims set out in the Mission Statement, special needs should be seen as a whole school issue and the responsibility of everyone; the head teacher, teachers, support assistants, parents/carers and governors. The school believes that all children have the right to a mainstream education where possible, and should be given equal access to learning experiences, regardless of gender, ability, race or background. This education should develop not only their intellectual and social skills but also meet the children’s moral and spiritual needs. We, therefore, intend that the Catholic faith should be central to and permeate all aspects of our Special Needs Policy.
