Queenswell Junior School

Inclusion

Queenswell Junior School prides itself on being an inclusive school.  We offer a stimulating and welcoming environment where our pupils can thrive and achieve the best possible outcomes within an atmosphere of high expectations, mutual respect and friendship. We continually strive to ensure the best possible provision for all pupils who have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), and work very closely with the child/ parents/ carers and any other professionals to ensure their needs are being continually met.

 

Our school building is all on one level, which makes it easily accessible to all pupils.

 

If you would like further information regarding Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), please contact the SENCo/ Assistant Head for Inclusion, Mrs Sarah Lloyd, on 0208 445 2056 ext. 3, or the SEND Administrator, Mrs Ursula Eady, on 0208 445 2056 ext. 1.

What we offer:

Here are some examples of the different activities and experiences we offer for children with Special Educational Needs at Queenswell Junior School:

 

  • HEWS – we are lucky enough to offer a Health and Emotional Wellbeing Service at the school, where children who have been referred to the service, can meet Talya Bruck, Primary Mental Health Worker for one-to-one or group sessions through art and drama therapy.

 

  • Out and About – some children learn life skills through our Out & About group, where they make short trips to local places such as the supermarket, the fire station and other places of interest.

 

 

  • Barnet Bar No-one – some children make a trip to a local Sports Facility to take part in athletics, in the past we have attended Allianz Park and Hendon Leisure Centre. The children spend a whole day there making full use of the specialist facilities on offer.

 

 

  • Motor Skills – some children benefit from tailored physiotherapy programmes designed to further their development in a specific area. These are provided by the child’s qualified physiotherapist and carried out at school under the supervision of a dedicated Teaching Assistant.

 

 

  • Cognition and Learning – some children receive bespoke literacy and numeracy support to help them access the curriculum.
