Buxton Junior School

Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

My name is Rebecca Hewison and I am the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) at Buxton Junior School. My role is to oversee the provision of interventions for children with SEND and make referrals to external agencies. In addition I support class teachers and teaching assistants by identifying training needs and providing or sourcing training.


In this section you will find our SEND Policy, which is reviewed annually, and the SEND Information Report, which gives more details about SEND provision at BJS.

If you would like to discuss any questions regarding SEN provision, you can contact me or Mrs Carter by telephoning the school office on 01298 22156. We will call you back as soon as we can and if necessary make an appointment to meet you in school.

Unfortunately, we are currently in the process of appointing a SEND Governor (we will update this section when this is confirmed).  If you wish to contact  the school office, or email and your message will be forwarded.


Derbyshire's Local Offer for Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities includes leisure and activity providers, health and care services, education providers and support groups.


There is also the Derbyshire Information, Advice and Support Service for SEND (formerly Parent Partnership Service, now DIAS). This is a free, impartial service which provides support, guidance and information to parents and carers of children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities.
