Our vision for children at St Joseph's with special educational needs and/or disabilities, is the same as for all children - that they achieve well in their early years and throughout school. In order to do this we aim to remove any barriers to learning through effective child centered provision.



Amaze is an award winning charity set up by parents for parents to provide free information, support and advice to families of children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities in Brighton and Hove. They can be contacted on 01273 234020 or email via: help-line@amazebrighton.org.uk
