Hart Plain Junior School


Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Inclusion at Hart Plain Junior School

At Hart Plain, we aim to provide a high quality education for all children. We believe that all children are entitled to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. We encourage all pupils to reach their full potential, including those with a gift or talent or a special educational need.


Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The emphasis is on a whole school approach at our school. We welcome pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and meet their needs in a positive manner. SEND may be identified before entry or once the pupil is attending school, when a parent or a member of staff may identify them. These needs are discussed with parents, in confidence, at the earliest opportunity.

The school works in partnership with parents to support a pupil’s development and address his or her needs to enable the pupil to achieve his or her potential. Extra support is provided when necessary, and in some cases, with parents’ consent, the school involves outside agencies to provide additional support.

Please read our SEND Information Report document as this answers any questions that you may have about how your child's learning, physical or emotional needs are supported by staff at Hart Plain Junior School. It tells you who to talk to and what support is in place to support your child. This document is located at the bottom of this page. Please also read our SEND Policy for additional information.

Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCO) is Emily Smith. Please make an appointment with your child's class teacher or directly with Mrs Smith if you have any concerns about your child's progress.
