Welcome to Special Educational Needs at St John's
My name is Amy Gammon and as the Senco (Special Needs Coordinator) at St John's, I am responsible for ensuring that all our children feel included and accepted and can reach their full potential whatever their additional need. I am passionate about working alongside families of children with additional needs, to identify those needs and find the correct support both in school and, wherever possible, at home too.
We have a strong ethos of nurture at St John's and this extends fully into SEN; we work hard to support and strengthen the mental health of our children. I share the school's approach of close communication with parents, and if you would like to get in touch with me, please call the school office on 01707 322589 or send an email for my attention to firstname.lastname@example.org
