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.
Our Governor for SEND is Ali Mackenzie. If you wish to contact her, please call the school office, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and your message will be forwarded.
We hold regular 'Parent Voice' meetings for parents/carers of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. These meeting are informal sessions to enable parents/carers to voice their views and opinions. Meetings start at 9.15am and refreshments are served.
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.
