Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) have learning difficulties or disabilities, which make it more difficult for them to learn or access learning, than other children of the same age. At Upton Junior School, we support all children to fulfil their potential and provide tailored additional support for those children who experience difficulties in achieving this.
Those identified as needing this support, are placed on the SEN register, following consultation with parents and progress is regularly monitored. We adopt a ‘pupil centred approach’ involving parents/carers and children in planning long term and short term goals and actions. To achieve this, planning meetings are held with parents/carers, child, class teacher and SENCO/and or Inclusion Manager three times a year. At these meetings progress is reviewed and new targets and actions are agreed and set, to support an individual’s progress in school.
We have a highly skilled SEN team in school, but can also call on the expertise of outside agencies when necessary. This includes professionals such as; Educational Psychologist, Community Paediatricians, Speech and Language Therapists and Specialist Teachers.
These documents all form part of the schools own offer of support for pupils with SEN and disabilities. This forms one part of Dorset Local Authority ‘Local Offer’. Details of Dorset’s Local Offer can be found in Children and Families (click on this link to access).
