Special Education Needs
All children at SJC are seen as individuals and many discussions take place to ensure that appropriate individual help is provided. Assessment is continual and we liaise with additional support, or agencies, as appropriate. We run many intervention programmes to ensure children progress at suitable levels.

This has been found to be particularly useful for children with Aspergers Syndrome. 10-09
