St James Catholic

Primary School

In the loving peace, justice and joy of Jesus, we achieve.

Are staff trained to deal with special educational needs?

All school staff will receive appropriate training so they have the knowledge and confidence to support children’s needs.


At St James’ we hold a weekly staff meeting. These are used to ensure staff have up-to-date knowledge to teach children of all abilities. 

Sometimes training is run by specialists e.g. Epipen training or training by a member of the Communication and Autism Team.

Mr Ingram is available for staff to talk to him   before and after school; they can ask for advice about teaching approaches and resources for children with additional needs. He is also contactable by e-mail 7 days a week.
