We are an inclusive school and pride ourselves on the opportunities that are given to all of our pupils. Every pupil within our school has the right to expect the highest standards of teaching and learning leading to good outcomes for all; alongside the opportunity to access both a broad and balanced school curriculum and the wider opportunities that are offered.

SENCO - Jamie Makepeace (Assistant Inclusion Headteacher)
Please contact Mrs Makepeace if you have any concerns.
At Bedgrove Junior School we recognise that sometimes learning can be challenging for some pupils. We provide quality first teaching for all pupils and when pupils have been identified as having additional needs we offer individualised support.
Every child on the SEND register has a SEN support plan. This outlines desired outcomes, type of provision, time and financial costings. These are shared with parents and carers three times per year.
We have Learning Support Assistants to support those children with additional needs. They are trained to run a number of interventions. Below is a sample of some of the interventions that are monitored by the SENDCo:
Precision Monitoring - to support pupils with specific numerical or literacy difficulties.
Rainbow Road - to support pupils with memory and sequencing difficulties.
OT resources pack - to support pupils with gross/fine motor difficulties
Social Stories - for children who struggle with self awareness and understanding of social expectations.
Direct phonics - for pupils who have not responded to other phonics teaching or interventions.
Project X - a range of books that engage pupils with reading and applying their phonics knowledge when reading.
Toe-by-Toe - systematic, one-to-one, phonics teaching.
Nurture Groups - a small group for children who may feel insecure in school or who are in need of more adult attention than can be provided in their main class.
