Key Information

Additional & Special Needs

Halfway Junior School supports many children with a wide range of additional and special needs. For some children these needs are ongoing, for others it may be a shorter term interaction.

 

Some children come to our school with clearly identified needs whilst others may be seeking a better understanding of their difficulties as they grow older.
 
Our top priority is to ensure that the day to day teaching for our children is right, resulting in happy and confident children who move forwards with their learning and maximise their potential in every way possible. Through close and regular monitoring of progress, both academically and emotionally, and through close communication with parents we are able to target our support in a range of ways individually tailored for each child. This can include additional in-class support, small group support or even one-to-one support.
 
As well as providing a wide range of help in school we link closely with other outside agencies to provide support for our children and their families. We enjoy close links with the Speech and Language Service, the Autism Support Service and Educational Psychologists. These services can provide advice and assessment when needed but also the reassurance to parents that school are catering well for our most vulnerable pupils.

The Multi Agency Support Team (MAST) can provide a wide range of services for our children/families and when required provide support outside of school.  
We have a wealth of experience to draw upon and a determined dedication to get it right for every pupil in school regardless of ability.
 
If you would like any further information please don't hesitate to contact us, we would love to hear from you.

The new Education, Health and Care Plan

From 1 September, Statements of Special Educational Need will be replaced by Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans. The new EHC Plan will give the same statutory protection, but now cover from birth to age 25 and will extend the rights to young people in further education and training, including apprenticeships, who currently have a Learning Disability Assessment (LDA).  Find out what the changes mean for your family by clicking here.
