Through our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) offer At St James' CE First School and Nursery we believe that all children deserve to reach their full potential. We will always strive to provide the best support for any child with Special Education Needs or a disability.
Our Inclusion Coordinator is Mrs Kathryn Cousins. Our Governor with responsibility for SEND is James Bothamley. We have well trained staff who work hard to support pupils with SEND and ensure that they continue to achieve good progress during their time at our school. Every pupil will have the opportunity to learn all of the National Curriculum subjects at the level that suits their ability. We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between pupils with SEND and those who do not. This may include school interventions, home-school learning programmes or other learning interventions developed on an individual needs basis.

Complaints about SEND provision:
If you want to complain about a school’s SEN support, you should do it while your child is still registered at the school.
This includes complaints that the school has not provided the support required by your child’s SEN statement or education, health and care (EHC) plan.
Follow these steps in order. Move on to the next step if your complaint is not resolved.
- Talk to the school’s special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO).
- Follow the school’s complaints procedure.
- Complain to your local authority.
Complain to the Education Funding Agency instead of the local authority if both the following apply:
- the school is an academy or free school
- your complaint is not about an SEN statement or an EHC plan
