Hadleigh Junior School works closely with other professional partners who regularly visit. These include contact with the specialist teacher teams; speech and language therapists, educational psychologists and other therapeutic services. We also have access to a counselling service. These partners may be involved in working with your child, reporting to you and contributing to the overall plan for what your child needs.

Hadleigh Junior School is an active member of the local BATIC (Benfleet and Thundersley Inter- Cluster) group of schools. All of the schools within the group work closely and are committed to providing high quality education for all children with special needs and disabilities.

The local provision is similar and the schools, apart from the Special Schools, do not offer any specific specialism towards a particular type of SEND.

Statement of intent


This policy outlines the framework for Hadleigh Junior School to meet its duty and obligation to provide a high quality education to all of its pupils,

Through successful implementation of this policy, the school aims to:

Eliminate discrimination.

Promote equal opportunities.

Foster good relationships between pupils with SEND and pupils without SEND.

Hadleigh Junior School will work with the LA within the following principles which underpin this policy:

The involvement of children, parents/carers and young people in decision-making

The identification of children’s and young people’s needs

Collaboration between education, health and social care services to provide support

High quality provision to meet the needs of children and young people with SEND

Greater choice and control for young people and parents/carers over their support

Complaints Procedure for SEND


The school follows a complaint procedure ( and this will be followed for any SEND complaints.


If you have a query or complaint regarding your child and the support they receive for their special educational need or disability please initially contact the class teacher, either on the playground at the end of the school day or via the School Office. This query will then be discussed and resolved or passed on to the SENCO.


If you feel this issue has not been dealt with sufficiently or you still need further advice please inform the Headteacher.
