Head of School’s Welcome

Dear Families and Friends

I would like to welcome you to our school.

 St. John’s Special School and College provides a supportive and happy environment through which our pupils, professionals, parents and carers "Achieve Together". We are very proud of our school which has now been judged outstanding in five successive Ofsted inspections, including our latest visit in June 2018.

We welcome support and involvement of parents, carers and families and we aim to work closely together.   We hold regular Family Drop ins and the FamCom Group meets regularly to discuss relevant school issues, so please come along.  Don’t forget the SJSSA who also welcome help with fundraising and arranging lovely events for our pupils and families. During the COVID pandemic, meetings are virtual through Microsoft Teams or Zoom.

Our school remains open and operational to pupils during the pandemic and staff are working very hard to ensure that families and pupils are supported through our onsite and Blended Learning Offer.  Mel Wooding, our Family Support Liaison Professional is also keen to help and support  families during this time, so please contact her as required. 

If you would like to see how we are managing the risk around the COVID 19 pandemic, please see our ongoing Covid 19 Risk Assessment  This is regularly updated to reflect changes in government advice or the local situation, but please contact us if you require further information.

If you have any concerns then please contact us at school. We will do our best to help you.  The website should provide some information, but if there is more you need to know, then please contact us.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss how we can work together.  I can be contacted through the School Office on 01234 355565 or via email on sjs@biltt.org.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes
Antonia Drysdale
Head of School
