Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Special Educational Needs at Brumby aims to support all children in their learning and help them to build a strong, aspirational vision for their future. We cater for, and strive to provide, a range of activities, support and resources for all the needs of our pupils.

We offer a range of support interventions, which include:

  • C.A.L.L (Communicative Aspects of Learning and Life)
  • SLT (Speech and Language Therapy)
  • Educational Psychologist service
  • Occupational therapy
  • Dyslexia support; where we have Mrs Kitchen who is a highly trained dyslexia support specialist in assessing and supporting these children
  • Phonics testing (to identify gaps in pupils’ phonic knowledge and spelling)
  • Fresh start (a phonics catch up for children in Year 5 and 6)
  • On-going support interventions which include: handwriting sessions and Read, Write Inc (Phonics led sessions)
photo 300x223 Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Occupational therapy intervention

At Brumby we recognise the need for all children to excel and be at their best. Experience has taught us that many children, at some point during their time with us, may require additional support. This includes children whose attainment is very high, as well as those who have fallen behind. For these reasons we offer specialist ‘booster sessions’ and 1-to-1 tutoring during and after school time as well, to give our pupils the best chance of success!

If you have any questions, interests or queries regarding Special Educational Needs and Disabilities please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Current SENCO: Ms D. Dalton, assisted by Miss L Cumberlidge

School hours

Morning – 8:55 am until 12:35 pm
Afternoon – 1:30 pm until 3:15 pm

Children should arrive between 8:30 am and 8:55 am, during which time there will be a member of staff on duty in each playground. Please be aware that we cannot take responsibility for the safety of children before 8:30 am or after school, unless they are attending a school club. The children are brought into school at 8:55 am, to ensure a prompt start to the day’s work.

Children may attend the Breakfast Club at a cost of 50p per morning. It operates from 8:15 to 8:45 every day and it is not necessary to book a place. We offer a variety of breakfast cereals, toast, etc and a drink. The children can access the club through the Year 6 and Year 4 playground doors.

The afternoon school session starts at 1:30pm. There is one playtime during the morning, but no playtime during the afternoon.

Attendance

Parents are responsible in law for ensuring that children of compulsory school age receives full time education. Where the child is registered at a school, the law requires regular attendance. This means attending school punctual every day during term time, unless there is good reason for absence or lateness.

Parents are responsible for notifying school if their child cannot attend. It is helpful if this could be done immediately on the first day of absence by either letter or telephone.

If your child has an appointment with the doctor or dentist etc, during school time, please notify your child’s teacher in advance. We do not allow children to leave the premises during school hours unsupervised and they should be collected from reception on these occasions.

Planned absence

Planned absence in term time will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. Leave of absence must be applied for in advance by completing a leave of absence form, available from the school office.

We expect parents will take holidays during normal closure.

Curriculum

Brumby Junior School curriculum

At Brumby Junior School we follow the National Curriculum for all subjects.

Screen Shot 2014 01 25 at 11.51.02 300x198 Curriculum

We have extended our morning sessions in Literacy and Numeracy so that there is more time for pupil discussion and feedback, and also more time for teachers to help pupils to accelerate. This is having a positive effect on progress and attainment.

For Literacy and Numeracy we have split the subject down into objectives and skills targets for each sub level, which helps us to plan lessons which are more effective for our pupils. It also gives children a really clear picture of the skills which they need to practise and develop. We are about to start trialling this system in our non-core subjects too.

With each lesson having levelled objectives, including extension objectives, the on-going teacher assessment which takes place daily is very accurate. We also use testing when necessary throughout the year to ascertain pupil levels, with major data entry points taking place every half term. This helps us to keep a really close eye on pupil progress: any individuals or groups who are stalling or regressing are quickly addressed.

Our most significant improvement since September 2011 has been to extend pupils wherever possible. The opening up of level 6 has given our pupils even more to aim for. In Year 6, pupils really appreciate the extra push they are given to try and achieve as highly as they can, and this culture has now filtered down to all other year groups. Our percentages of pupils who exceed the national averages in key subjects are increasing as a result.

DSCN2270 300x225 CurriculumOur afternoon sessions are now cross-curricular for many subjects. For example, we teach topics of work which incorporate ICT, History, Geography, Art, Technology and Music where possible. We also have a creativity afternoon across the whole school on Friday afternoons where, in the summer term, children have a choice (in their year groups) of which topic they will study. This culminates in a whole school open morning. We also teach discrete sessions for Science, PE, PHSCE and RE.

We are looking into the draft proposals for the new National Curriculum which will come into effect from September 2014, but for now we constantly evolve our curriculum to ensure that all pupils receive the best education possible.

Achievements

At Brumby Junior School our ethos is to strive to do our best at all times, in both pupils and staff, so when success is achieved it is important for it to be recognised and celebrated. We want everyone to realise that hard work and a positive attitude are vital if they are to achieve as much as they possibly can. We have worked hard to create an ethos in which children can progress far beyond the levels that are expected of them, whilst still providing targeted support those children who need extra support to learn key skills.

Every year for the past three years we have improved our SATs results. This is because of all the hard work that our teachers, teaching assistants, parents and pupils have been putting in each and every day. Well done everyone for this year’s amazing results!  We’ve still got areas that we want to improve in though, so we will keep on trying our hardest to get the best out of our children.

All of our scores are above the national averages for last year too! 

Because we have 106 children in Y6, each child at Brumby represents 0.94% of the total. The        percentages below are percentage of the whole year group who reached each level.

Dojo shop is open – pupils start spending!

Dojo shop is open – pupils start spending!

Thank you for your many rapid responses and concerns relating to the sudden drops in your child’s Dojo scores: please do not be alarmed however – the children have been “spending” their hard-earned Dojos in the shop! For example, you may have noticed them coming home with new footballs, pencil cases, drinks bottles etc. If your child has suddenly “lost” a lot of dojos (20+) then please ask them what they spent theirs on—children sometimes forget to tell their parents what they have been doing at school!
It is great that so many of you have been in touch, as your concerns show that you are as interested in your child’s success as we are. We’d love the Dojo APP to have a facility to show spending as neither negative or positive, but currently it does not have this feature, so we have to remove dojos manually, which alerts parents via the app. However, please rest assured that if you child did something so serious that it merited losing a huge amount of dojos, you would most certainly here it from us first.
For more information on the things that they may have purchased, have a look at the website at www.brumbyjuniorschool.co.uk and follow the parents link to the Dojo Shop
Incidentally, we are very impressed with the number of pupils who have decided to save their dojos! We have some very ambitious pupils….

You can grow your brain!

You can grow your brain!

At Brumby Juniors we have been looking at ways to help our children learn better. One way is to help them to achieve a ‘growth mindset’ which basically means they believe they can become more intellegent if they work at something and give quality practice to it. The article below will be shared and discussed with the children over the next few weeks, we thought it would also be interesting for parents to read (and hopefully re-enforce the message at home!). If you aren’t very good at something…yet, then quality practice will get you there…eventually! We will be releasing videos and more information on how to help your child have a ‘growth mindset’ over the coming months.

Pupil Safety travelling to and from school

Pupil Safety travelling to and from school

Unfortunately, on the evening of Monday 22nd September, one of our pupils was hit by a van on his way home from school.

The boy in question was one of a number of pupils who were crossing the road between parked cars. According to witnesses to the incident, many of these pupils were failing to cross the road in a safe place or in a safe manner.

Fortunately, the can driver saw what was about to happen and managed to slow down enough: although the boy was fortunate enough to survive the incident, he was knocked to the ground and his foot was run over.

Sadly, we have had a number of complaints in recent days about the way in which a tiny minority of our pupils have been failing to keep themselves safe on the way to or from school. As a result, a number of our pupils are now on final warnings regarding cycle or scooter use, and one has been banned outright.

We are very concerned about the safety of our students, so please speak carefully to your child about this as soon as you read this. We do our best to inform parents when we hear that pupils are failing to keep themselves safe, but some children continue to make terrible decisions around the roads near school. If we work together to support these children, we hope we can prevent such a horrible accident ever happening again.
