SEND - Special Educational Needs and Disability

At Busbridge Junior School we believe that all children should have access to a broad and balanced education which gives them the opportunity to realise their full potential and achieve success. For some children this will mean the school making special provision within the curriculum to meet their individual needs. Some children will need additional support delivered through targetted interventions. An intervention will be identified by the school's SENCo and class teacher, and delivered by trained Learning Support Assistants individually or in small groups. SEND support encompasses all areas of the child's development which include:

  • if the pupil is not making as much progress as other children of the same age
  • if the pupil has a learning difficulty such as dyslexia
  • if the pupil has a disability or health problem
  • if the pupil has social communication difficulties

The class teacher and SENCo will work closely with the pupil's parents or carers to ensure the support follows a child-centred approach.

Some children will have significant and long-term needs and will be supported by an EHCP (Education and Health Care Plan).
