Inclusion and SEND

Emmbrook Junior School is a fully inclusive school. Inclusion looks at the needs of all pupils, including children with:

  • Specific learning difficulties
  • Emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • EAL (English as and Additional Language)
  • And pupils considered to be Gifted and Talented

Principles

At Emmbrook Junior School we follow the principles of Inclusion as laid down in the Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs 2014:

  • To ensure all pupils are offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum
  • All pupils will be given the opportunity to reach their full potential educationally, emotionally, and physically
  • All teachers view themselves as teachers of pupils with special educational needs, teaching such pupils is a whole school responsibility
  • All pupils with special educational needs should have their needs met
  • Pupil’s special educational needs will normally be met in the mainstream classroom
  • Pupil’s views should be sought and taken into account
  • Parents/carers have a vital role to play in supporting their child’s education and therefore good home/school links are established

For further information about how Emmbrook Junior School ensures that the needs of all pupils are met please read our Parent Pamphlet: Emmbrook Parent Pamphlet.

School Information

(Updated 10 September 2021)

Dear Parents & Carers,

You may be aware that we have had a positive case identified within Y5 at the end of his week (10.09.21). We have informed the parents in the year group concerned and the local authority as well as the school’s governing board. The current operational guidance issued by the government does not require us to take any further action and so we will continue to monitor the situation. Children in the affected year group should continue to come to school unless they are displaying symptoms.  Many schools in the area have now had cases and it seems that with the number of cases rising nationally we are likely to see an increase ourselves over the coming months.

If your child displays any symptoms please arrange for a test as soon as possible. Information and advice can be found at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/

We are continuing to ensure increased ventilation around the school, as well as regular hand washing and cleaning of tables and equipment.
