Special Educational Needs
At Studfall Junior School, we work very hard to support all our pupils including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We work closely with our partner schools to ensure we have a thorough understanding of the individual needs of any of our pupils on entry.
The academy has a Designated Special Provision for up to 24 children with significant to severe learning difficulties serving Corby and the surrounding villages. Studfall offers an inclusive provision for pupils who require arrangements over and above that which an everyday mainstream school can provide through an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). They may need additional teaching to help them with their learning, speech, language and communication needs. The children are mainly taught within the class groups with some withdrawal facilities available for specialist or small group teaching.
We develop careful plans to ensure our pupils are well- prepared for starting school or joining us throughout the primary phase. For some pupils, we offer a bespoke programme to help them have a smooth transition.
Once at the school, we provide a range of strategies including:
- Individual and small group support in the classroom or through withdrawal
- A curriculum catering for each child's needs
- One to one or small group catch up programmes
- Our work in this area is led by our SENDCo's, Mrs Parris (Infant Site), Miss Stark (Junior site). If you have any concerns about your child please contact the school on 01536 264540 (Infant Site), 01536 202621 (Junior site)
