Cockton Hill Junior School prides itself in being inclusive and will endeavor to support every child regardless of their level of need. All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented.
To successfully match pupil’s pastoral, medical and/or social need there are some actions we may take to achieve this:
- Ensure that all pupils have access to the school curriculum and all school activities.
- Help all pupils achieve to the best of their abilities, despite any difficulty or disability they may have.
- Ensure that teaching staff are aware of and sensitive to the needs of all pupils, teaching pupils in a way that is more appropriate to their needs.
- Pupils to gain in confidence and improve their self-esteem.
- To work in partnership with parents and/or cares, pupils and relevant external agencies in order to provide for children’s special educational needs and disabilities.
- To identify at the earliest opportunity, all children that need additional consideration to support their needs (whether these are educational, social, physical or emotional)
- To make suitable provision for children with SEND to fully develop their abilities, interests and aptitudes and gain maximum access to the curriculum.
- Ensure that all children with SEND are fully included in all activities of the school in order to promote the highest levels of achievement.
- To promote self-worth and enthusiasm by encouraging independence at all age and ability levels.
- To give every child the entitlement to a sense of achievement.
- To regularly review the policy and practice in order to achieve best practice.
We endeavor to talk to parents and/or carers if they think their child has a special educational need and let them know what additional support the school is providing. Each child’s teacher will be working closely with the child to find ways to support them.
Health Care Plans for Medical Needs
Children with ongoing medical or diagnosed conditions, including asthma, will have a Healthcare plan in place completed together with parents, children and school staff. The Health care plan details the medical condition, signs and symptoms and any treatment required.
We can administer medication in school including antibiotics, ear/eye drops and cough medicines. If a child requires medicine within the school day parents must ensure that the school office is aware of this and a medication administration form must be completed at the school office. Medication cannot be administrated without this form fully completed. We have trained staff who will administer the medication. We request that parents hand over any medication to the school office at the start of the day and collect this at home time.
If you would like to discuss your child’s needs in more detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment on 01388 602058 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
