Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it more difficult for them to learn or access learning than other children of the same age.
Children at Upton Junior School who experience these difficulties are placed on the SEN register and progress is monitored regularly.
We adopt the ‘person centred approach’ involving parents and children in key decisions. We meet three times a year to review targets set and plan strategies for next steps.
We are supported by outside agencies and can use their expertise for support when needed. Such professionals include; Educational Psychologist, Community Paediatricians, Speech and Language Therapists and Specialist Teachers.
To read our Local Offer, which sets out information and support for children and families, please see the link below.
We provide additional support for pupils who may need some help with everyday issues including; self esteem, friendships, social skills, behaviour, anger management, emotions, loss and bereavement, amongst others. Mrs French and Mrs Rosser are trained ELSA's (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) and can offer help to pupils who need guidance in the various areas mentioned. Please speak to one of the SEN team for additional information and read the leaflet below.
In addition to our school information and other Government related documents, please see the Government website links below. The website features leaflets for parents of young people explaining changes to the special educational needs and disability support in England.
