Special Educational Needs (SEN) Report

SEN Team:

At Rednal Hill Junior School we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all our pupils. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all pupils are able to participate fully in the life of the school. We strive to ensure that all pupils achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum.

Admission arrangements for pupils with SEN or disabilities

At Rednal Hill Junior School we follow Birmingham City Council Schools’ Admissions Arrangements. Details can be found here:

No pupil will be refused admission to the school on the basis of his or her special educational need. In line with the Equality Act 2010, we do not discriminate against disabled children in respect of admissions for a reason related to their disability.

Steps taken to prevent pupils with SEN from being treated less favourably than other pupils

We aim to ensure that no child is disadvantaged by result of a disability or special educational need. To achieve this aim we:

  1. Promote an inclusive ethos and curriculum
  2. Ensure all school staff receive appropriate training so that they have the knowledge and confidence to support children’s needs
  3. Make additional support for learning available to pupils with special educational needs eg Teaching Assistants, Learning Mentor, Play Therapist
  4. Provide a range of resources and specialised equipment, available as appropriate, to support the needs of specific children and to ensure that children can appropriately access their learning
  5. Seek the support of specialist advisors to ensure the needs of pupils are met through the provision of appropriate equipment, the adaptation of materials and curriculum provision
  6. Make adjustments to ensure children with additional needs are able to take part fully in after school clubs, school trips, performances and social events
  7. Write clear risk assessments and carry out regular reviews of the building and equipment to ensure access and participation for all children

Access facilities for pupils with SEN

We aim to make our school:

  1. accessible and welcoming to all staff, pupils and visitors, regardless of disability
  2. fully inclusive to support equal opportunities so that all students, including those with impaired movement/vision/hearing and other disabilities, can achieve their full potential
  3. a place where all pupils will be fully involved in the day-to-day life of the school
  4. Measures in place to achieve this aim include:
  5. the school building and playground are fully accessible for all children with a physical difficulty via ramps
  6. dedicated disabled parking bays to ensure a safe drop off point
  7. the Junior School is situated on the first floor of the building and is accessible via the lift
  8. a disabled toilet and changing facilities
  9. extra-curricular activities are accessible to all children
  10. relevant risk assessments are completed for out of school activities; planning for appropriate transport and reasonable adjustments made to ensure that all pupils are able to take part
  11. purchase or hire of specialist equipment recommended by outside agencies
  12. additional adult support where necessary

Accessibility Plan

In compliance with paragraph 3 of schedule 10 to the Equality Act 2010 the Governing Body has written an Accessibility Plan which can be found here.

The Accessibility Plan contains relevant actions to:

  1. Improve access to the physical environment of the school. This will include improvements to the physical environment of the school and physical aids to learning
  2. Improve the delivery of written information to pupils, staff, parents and visitors with disabilities. This will include planning to make written information more accessible by taking into account the disabilities of recipients and their preferred formats
  3. Increase access to the curriculum for disabled pupils. This will include teaching and learning and the wider curriculum of the school such as participation in after-school clubs, leisure and cultural activities or school visits. It also covers the provision of specialist aids and equipment which may assist these pupils in accessing the curriculum
