Juniper Hill School

Juniper Hill School is a two form entry mainstream combined primary school which has an Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) for children with an EHC plan for physical difficulties. 

Our vision is to ensure that Juniper Hill is a happy, caring school which promotes individual development, enabling all our children to achieve their full potential. To promote independent and inclusive learning; developing confident, responsible and ambitious children.

The school supports children with a range of Special Educational Need and these children are fully included in class room activities. Teachers are teachers of all pupils including those with SEND. This is achieved by quality first teaching which includes effective differentiation and monitoring of all pupils. Children admitted to the school through the ARP are taught alongside their peers in mainstream classes but also have access to individualised speech and language programmes, physiotherapy and occupational therapy programmes if needed.

Description

Accessibility of site

  • The school has a flat site and is accessible to wheelchair users.

  • Ramps are provided around the outside of the building.

  • There are two accessible toilets on-site as well as changing rooms with hoisting facilities.

See link to SEN Policy and SEN Annual report.

Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP)

  • For children with an EHC plan for physical difficulties.

The School identifies children with SEND in line with the Buckinghamshire SEND policy. Pupils are identified as needing extra support from information such as concerns raised by parents/carers, information provided by pre-school settings, termly pupil progress meetings and regular assessments and tracking of pupil progress.  Outside professional agencies are also used to give advice and support.  The effectiveness of any intervention programme delivered is monitored regularly by the staff delivering it and the SENCo. Termly data and information from class teachers, parents, learning support assistants and the pupil, where appropriate, are all used to assess the effectiveness of the provision and the progress of the pupil with SEND.

All staff are given training in different strategies which are needed to enable them to support children in accessing the curriculum and make progress, whatever the barriers to learning might be.  More specific training is given to staff who support children with physical difficulties if needed.  All reasonable and appropriate adjustments are made in order to support children in their education at the school.

Where a child has a Statement of Special Educational Need (EHC plan) a review is held annually with parents/carers, staff, other relevant professionals and the pupil present – if age appropriate.  Parents’ evenings are held twice a year when parents/carers can meet with the class teacher and additional 1:1 appointments can also be made with the SENCo on these evenings.  Appointments can be made at any time during the year to meet with the SENCo and/or class teacher to address any parental needs/concerns.  All relevant information is passed onto parents through 1:1 meetings.

The SENCo meets with both parents and professionals at the current setting prior to a child with a Statement/EHC Plan joining the school so the child can be supported in the most appropriate way during this transition.  Links with other settings also enable Juniper Hill to support pupils as they leave the school.
