Our Trust of Schools


At St James School we are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all pupils. We value all children equally and do our utmost to support students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We try hard to work alongside parents to support our students in a way that is as inclusive as possible and which will enable them to fulfil their academic potential and prepare them effectively for their next steps on leaving us.

SEND provision is organised under the four areas of need identified in the 2015 SEND Code of Practice.

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and learning
  • Social emotional and mental health
  • Physical/Sensory

All the information about how we support students with SEND at the school is contained within our SEND report which can also be found here and also in our SEND Policy which is on the website too.

The school’s SENDCo is Miss Ruston –

The Head of Learning Support and Designated Teacher for Children in Care is Mrs Miles:

We would invite you to share any concerns, questions or successes as we find that good communication is at the heart of effective provision.

Devon also offers parents an independent, confidential and free SEND support service through Devon Information Advice and Support (DIAS) or tel. 01392 383080
