Learning principles

The children are encouraged to work hard and achieve their personal best, whether it is in the classroom, on the sports fields or through the myriad other opportunities they have for their personal and spiritual development and all-round growth. SJI tries to meet the needs of each child as an individual; each is supported and encouraged by the other boys and girls and by a strong and very committed staff. Whilst protected and nurtured, the children are also challenged in order to build their ability to thrive as adults in the future.

Student Support

Support for special learning needs

Yes

The school is fully committed to providing a high quality education for every student who attends its school and recognises that each student is unique and has individual needs. The school believes that all students should be encouraged to pursue excellence and be supported in achieving their personal best. If the school finds that a student will benefit from additional learning support, beyond the standard range of differentiation within the grade level, then they will be referred to the Learning Support Team. The Learning Support Team work in close collaboration with parents, classroom teachers, the pastoral team and outside professionals, if necessary, to identify how best to support all students on their learning journey. Typically this involves a member of the Learning Support Team observing the student in the classroom, using a range of screening and assessment tools and conducting cognitive, academic and achievement tests to determine the correct level of support. If appropriate, our Learning Support Team will refer parents to seek further assessments with outside professionals such as an educational psychologist, paediatrician, speech and language therapist, or occupational therapist. However, it is important to note that the scope and availability of the Learning Support services is limited. All students seeking to enrol, who have received learning support at their previous school, are required to inform the school during the admissions process.
