 Welcome to Inclusion


At St. Joseph's we strive to ensure that our practice and provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disablities (SEND) is the best that it can be, we therefore welcome any feedback, good or bad! Your feedback enables us to review and improve our practice. We have a 'open door ethos' and encourage you to come in and share your views.
