Catholic values and beliefs underpin the distinctive ethos of St. Ignatius College and the very strong and powerful Jesuit traditions, expectations and prayer life of the school.
The College is inclusive and aims to promote equality of opportunity, excellence and the development of individual potential. We believe that all our students are of equal value and share the same educational rights - irrespective of race, gender, sexuality or disability – and are given the same opportunities to progress and fulfil their potential. The College recognises the whole person and the gifts they may possess. The College’s SEND policy will have full regard to the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 2005.
All students are entitled to and should have the opportunity to develop a wide range of learning and life skills. We believe that this entitlement should be delivered through a balanced and broad curriculum. We hope that all our students will develop the knowledge, skills and critical reasoning to function autonomously throughout life.
The Learning Development Department is led by Mrs Goodwin (Assistant Headteacher), Mrs Antoniadis (Assistant SENDCo) and Mrs Di Pierro, Learning Mentor. The school has a team of Learning Support Assistants with training and experience of supporting students with a variety of needs such as Autism, Speech, Language and Communication Difficulties and literacy difficulties.
