SEND and Inclusion

Designated SEND and Inclusion Lead - Mrs. N Danks

 

The term SEND stands for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. At Busill Jones, we strive to provide an inclusive curriculum in line with the SEND Code of Practice (2015) and the Equalities Act (2010), where all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential and to develop as happy and successful individuals. We celebrate and value the diversity of our community and take into account every child’s individual needs and experiences in order to prepare them for life beyond primary school. 

Everyone at Busill Jones respects others and we work hard as a team to promote inclusivity and recognise diversity as an asset of ours. We actively celebrate the contribution of all individuals and groups within the school community and ensure that access and opportunities are equally available to everyone. Children with SEND are given equal opportunities and first-hand learning experiences to discover their own hidden talents, skills and new passions despite any barriers they may face.

 

Our SEND and Inclusion Lead has direct responsibility for ensuring that the school has appropriate educational provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. 

 

Busill Jones' SEND Offer

We are committed to providing high quality teaching that allows all children, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities, to embed and build-on prior learning in order to reach their full potential. Planning is personalised to meet the needs of each child and lessons taught are carefully adapted. Staff use a variety of teaching styles, resources and additional adult support during lessons to remove any barriers to learning.

Please download Busill Jones’ SEND Offer for detailed information about the support in place for pupils with SEND.

Disability Access

 

The school complies with the Disability Discrimination Act 2001 by ensuring that the needs of disabled people are considered when planning the education offered by the school. We have substantial and extensive facilities throughout school to ensure disability access for children, staff and visitors.

 

Administration of Medicines at School

 

Non prescribed medicines will not be administered in school. For medication that children are required to take during the day, medication should display a printed label which clearly identifies the child, dosage and number of times required. This will be kept in school and administered by a member of staff who has received administering medication training. Parents must complete a heath care form upon the start of the child's medication.
