At Joydens Wood Infant School we value and respect our children as individuals, whatever their needs.

We are an inclusive school and take pride in our pupils’ engagement in learning across the curriculum.  Progress is carefully monitored and parents/carers are valued as part of the team when it comes to meeting their child’s particular needs and overcoming any barriers to learning.

Children may need extra support, sometimes in the classroom with the teacher or teaching assistant or maybe through more personalised intervention.  If further support is needed then a range of outside

agencies may be involved.  These might include the School Nurse, Speech and Language Therapist, Specialist Teachers or an Educational Psychologist.

Our SENCO is Miss Emma Barnett. She can be contacted via the school office or by email:,  please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like some advice or support with any area of SEND.
