SEND SUPPORT AT EXHALL JUNIOR SCHOOL
Here at Exhall Junior School, we have inclusion at the forefront of all we do, welcoming all children and families. We have high expectations for all students and ensure we are both support and challenge children in our approach.
For some children, arrangements must be made that go beyond our universal offer in order to include them as much as possible in all that the school can provide. We follow the SEND Code of Practice Guidance on the special educational needs and disability (SEND) system for children and young people aged 0 to 25.
A school’s provision for SEND is defined as support which is additional to or different from that which is available to all students. Our SEND information report is intended to give you information regarding the ways in which we ensure that children with SEND are educated, wherever possible, in an inclusive environment alongside their peers to enable each student to reach their potential. It may not list every skill, resource and strategy we employ in order to achieve this as these are continually developed and used to modify our provision to meet the changing requirements for individual pupils.
Additional information about how students with SEND can be supported in school can be found on the the Warwickshire Local Offer - https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/send or via their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/WarksLocalOffer
If you would like some targeted support and help then Warwickshire SENDIAS run by the charity KIDs can offer tailored support and help including
- Information regarding the local offer, local policy and SEN/disability law from independently trained staff;
- Advice for parents/carers, children and young people on gathering, understanding and interpreting information and applying it to their own situation;
- Personalisation of personal budgets;
- Information on the county council's processes for resolving disagreements, its complaints procedures and means of redress;
- Signposting children, young people and parents to alternative and additional sources of local and national information, advice and support;
Please also read our SEND INFORMATION REPORT and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

How We Can Support
We address the needs of children using the four main areas outlined in the Code of Practice (2014) these are:
Communication and Interaction
Cognition and Learning
Social, emotional and mental health difficulties. (SEMH)
Sensory and/or physical needs
At Exhall Junior School we are aware that these needs will be inter-related and that children may have more than one area of need. We treat all children as individuals and we regularly review provision and recognise that needs may change over time. All children on our SEND register will have an individual IEP (Individual Education Plan) links to their needs. A termly meeting will be arranged to discuss your child's provision with either the class teacher and/or Inclusion Lead.
