What says..

Success for all is guaranteed through excellent, experienced teaching, and, often too, by high levels of staffing, which enables children to be taught in small groups when small groups are most needed. Years 4 ,5 and 6 use laptops in class, but this is not a place which believes that technology is always the answer. ‘Four year olds need to interact with each other and the natural environment,’ says the head, who has removed whiteboards from the nursery classroom. ‘The school really represents London,’ said one mother. ‘It’s very…

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

What The Good Schools Guide says

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. We have extensive provision for out of hours learning; this includes many after school clubs eg Performing Arts, which children are often encouraged to attend, if we believe it will enhance their work and/or behaviour in school time. This has been found to be particularly useful for children with Aspergers Syndrome. 10-09
