We work in partnership with the Local Authority to support any child who has an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan). If a child already has an EHCP or has significant special or medical needs, please talk to us in confidence so that together we can ensure that all aspects of the admission process take place in good time, to ensure the best support for your child.
Our school has an Additionally Resourced Provision or (ARP) for up to 12 pupils with a Physical Disability (PD). Our ARP provides extra support to enable children to be fully included in our school.
All teaching is carefully planned so the needs of all pupils are met. Lessons are differentiated to ensure the children are challenged. Pupils with significant special educational needs will have individual programmes / interventions, to address the targets on their EHCP, as well as adult support when necessary.
We are proud of the fact that our school has a positive attitude towards the inclusion of all pupils as we wish our school to be a true reflection of the society in which our children live.
At Juniper, we believes that every child has the right to achieve and feel successful. We provide educational experiences which develop pupils’ achievements and recognise their individuality. Diversity is valued as a rich resource which supports the learning of all. In our school, inclusion recognises the right of every child to a broad, balanced, exciting and challenging curriculum which is appropriate to their individual abilities, talents and personal qualities. It involves the identification and minimising of barriers to learning and participation that may be experienced by any pupil, regardless of age, ability, gender, ethnicity, language and social background and the maximising of resources to reduce these barriers.
Mrs Annika Williams is our Assistant Head - Inclusion/Head of ARP (SENDCo). She can be contacted via the school office on 01628 523536.
