Providing for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) is at the heart of our inclusive school. There is a shared expectation that all children regardless of their specific needs should be offered inclusive quality first teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community.
We aim to address children’s needs and support their development in the most appropriate way possible and celebrate both effort and achievement. We want our children to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and make a successful transition into their secondary school and beyond.
Additional and/or different provision is currently provided in our school for children with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities including:
Our Inclusion Team is led by our AHT for Inclusion, Mrs Sandie Saunders ( SENCo is part of her role), and includes an Inclusion Assistant, an English Intervention Assistant, a LSA with some pastoral responsibility in each Year Team and a team of experienced LSAs is based in each year team. They all have extensive experience and training in assessing children’s needs, planning and implementing support/interventions, reviewing the impact of these programmes of support and providing excellent pastoral support for the children at our school.
This section of our website aims to help parents/carers by providing an outline of what we can offer here at Thomas A Becket Junior.
