All Hertfordshire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). They are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. Schools aim to be inclusive, with the needs of SEND pupils being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.
Mrs Fogden is our Inclusion Co-ordinator (INCO). She is an experienced teacher who works closely with each of the class teachers and helps to identify needs, organise provision and liaise with external professionals in order to meet the needs of our children.
She also organises additional intervention programmes with the support staff in school.
If you want to talk about your child’s special educational or disability Mrs Fogden, our Inclusion leader with responsibility for SEND, can be contacted in school. She works from Monday to Thursday each week. Appointments can be made via the school office.
For questions and answers about the type of support we are able to provide at Field Junior School, please read the documents below. (In response to parent feedback we have included a simplified version of the Information Report which outlines the main elements).
