Inclusion at Wallace Fields Junior School
Wallace Fields Junior School prides itself in its strong inclusive values and ethos. We strive to meet the needs of all learners, be it academic, emotional or behavioural.
The needs of all pupils are assessed upon entry into school and at regular intervals thereafter. Some pupils require extra help because of learning difficulties, physical disabilities or emotional and behavioural needs. For those identified with specific needs, appropriate programmes of work and support are devised by the Special
Educational Needs Co-ordinator, teaching staff and teaching assistants. Where necessary, the advice of medical staff, speech and language specialists or educational psychologists is obtained. Parents will be approached for permission before any outside agency is asked to assess a child. Children on the SEND register will get SEND Support Arrangement plan to inform parents of their targets which are then reviewed after each assessment point in the school year. SEND targets are set and reviewed with pupils to ensure that they feel involved in the process and that their views are valued. We have a good transition relationship with feeder schools and our local Secondaries to ensure that all children have a smooth transition to and from our school
“The arrangements to keep track of pupils' academic progress as they move through the school, are exceptionally thorough and the information is used very well to plan support and intervention for pupils not making expected progress.” OFSTED 2008
The school works closely within the framework of the special needs ‘Code of
Practice’. The school’s policy on special needs and explanation of the code is available to interested parents. (Please ask at the school office or follow the link.)
More able pupils will be given appropriate tasks and challenges to extend them within the classroom situation. This usually requires them to use and apply the skills and knowledge they have to solve problems either independently or as part of a team. The learning of all children is carefully monitored to ensure progress is maintained
Pupils with English as an Additional Language
Wallace Fields Junior School welcomes children from all over the world and enjoys the diversity that this brings. Different cultures and languages are regularly celebrated in a variety of ways. Those pupils who speak English as an additional language are supported to ensure they have access to the curriculum and are carefully tracked to ensure they make progress in a secure learning environment.

Fields Junior School aims to provide disabled pupils full access to every aspect of school life. The school has wheelchair access to most teaching areas and regularly reviews provision to meet legislation and any future needs. Our accessibility plan is available upon request.
