SEND

The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) here at Hasland Junior School is Amy Gould. As SENCO she co-ordinates all the specific provision that is put in place to support children with SEND. She is responsible for writing and implementing the Special Educational Needs and Disability policy. She works closely with the class teachers to monitor pupils’ progress and arrange additional and different provision. This is often in conjunction with external agencies who can give us further advice and support. Children with Special Educational Needs play a central role in evaluating their own progress and helping to determine future targets.

 

Along with the Governing Body and in line with the SEN Code of Practice (2014) here at Hasland Junior School it is our concern to do our best to secure the necessary provisions for all pupil who have special educational needs in order to meet those needs.  The Governors operate and fully support a Policy of Equal Opportunities and children with SEN are fully integrated with their peers, although a Teaching Assistant or the Primary Support Teacher may withdraw children for specific work outside the classroom as well as support them in the classroom.

 

The School's admission policy ensures that pupils with SEN are treated equally.  The Governors are keen to involve the parents/carers as fully as possible in any school based action and parents/carers will be encouraged to attend all review meetings.  We accept that the child has a right to be heard and encouraged to participate in decision making about the provisions to meet their educational needs.

 

There is a statutory requirement for all schools to produce an accessibility plan (SEN and disability Act 2001) a copy of which is available on request.  We are an inclusive school and we will strive to ensure accessibility for disabled pupils.

The school has a designated Governor to have an overview on the implementation and monitoring of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Policy.
