Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

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:

 

  • Cognition and Learning – Moderate learning difficulties; Specific learning difficulties - dyslexia, dyspraxia.
  • Sensory, Medical and Physical – hearing/visual impairment, sensory processing difficulties, epilepsy.
  • Communication and Interaction – Autistic Spectrum Condition, Asperger’s Syndrome, speech and language difficulties.
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

 

Our Inclusion Team is led by our Assistant Head for Inclusion and includes an Inclusion Assistant, an English Intervention Assistant, a Learning Mentor in each year group, and a team of experienced LSAs based each year group. 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.
