Inclusion

Staff at Epping St John's believe that all children should have an equal opportunity to have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and to be included in all activities at school that are open to pupils of their age group.
 
The Inclusion Department work hard to meet the needs of the wide range of students who have additional needs. We are always trying to develop and improve the support we offer to children and young people.  To reach their academic, social and emotional potential the team offer various support approaches. We strive to make the transition from primary to secondary school a smooth one and the Inclusion Manager visits all of the feeder primary schools to meet students and teachers to ensure we are aware of any support needs. For the past two years we have offered additional transition days and a Summer School, from which we have received positive feedback.
 
Epping St John's aims to secure equal opportunity for every child by promoting and supporting the development of an inclusive education within secondary school and by ensuring that ultimately every child is able to access mainstream education and receive appropriate, additional support in respect of any special educational needs they may have.
 
We work hard to celebrate the success of individual students and invite parents and carers to join in these celebrations.
