Hilltop Junior School SEN Policy and Information Report 2016-2017:
Supporting pupils with special educational needs and disabilities at our school

In our most recent Ofsted inspection in September 2015, SEND was identified as a strength of our school, with inspectors stating that:


'disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make good progress'.



'the use of classroom assistants and other adults to support learning is planned well across the school'.


'the school has a clear view of what needs to be done to raise standards further and works successfully with parents/carers and outside agencies'.


'adults have a clear view of the purpose of their work and are able to support pupils of all ability effectively'.

The new 'Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 0-25 Years' (2014) states that:
'All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:
  • achieve their best


  • become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and


  • make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training'.
As part of the new regulations, all schools are required to publish information each year about the ways in which they identify, assess and make provision for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities to ensure that these aims are met.
This information for our school is detailed in our:
