At Ilfracombe Church of England Junior School, we pride ourselves on being a totally inclusive community – everybody is welcome.
We cater for the needs of all children in our care & support them in every aspect of school life.
Our Special Educational Needs (SEN) Team meets regularly to review the provision for children ranging from those with specific learning needs, behavioural issues and children who just need a helping hand every so often.
The work of our Pastoral Team in "The Bridge" has been recognised as an example of the good practise at both county level and in local schools.
A Thank You Letter from Grateful Parents
The letter below was received by our school in November 2016. The names have been removed to protect identities.
We would just like to thank you all so much for all the hard work and effort that you have given our daughter this year. We are so excited that she has achieved so much in just 7 months at your school. You have exceeded all of our expectations - just the fact that she is now able to read and write, when she couldn't even comprehend these skills at the start of her year is amazing - Thank you - you have given us confidence that our daughter can and will prosper in mainstream education.
She is very happy at school for the first time in her life and is actually wanting to go to school (even in the holidays) which tells us how successful your teaching methods are. We are overjoyed at her achievements and extremely proud of her and we can’t thank you enough for this and the new found confidence you have given her. Also the continued support and meetings/updates and involvement as parents has been outstanding and you have helped in many ways.
We would recommend your school to other parents of children with special needs/autism as we have seen the progress and achievements / milestones you have crossed with her in such a short space of time and also the little extras that you do that make school life / lunch / playtime much easier for her to cope with. We are very lucky to have found you and are looking forward to next year and our daughters' future success in the classroom / school.
