Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Please visit the Federation SEND page for our policies and other useful links and information. 

Backwell Junior School is a welcoming, inclusive family which is committed to all children reaching their full potential. Our nurturing environment enables our children to feel secure, safe and develop confidence and enthusiasm for their learning. 

Our learning environment is exciting and encourages ALL to participate. Our curriculum is broad, stimulating and creative and it focuses on the whole child to prepare them for the future.

Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo) works with all school staff to make sure that appropriate access to the curriculum is available for all children. The kind of support your child may receive whilst with us might include:

  • Small group interventions
  • A personalised plan to meet a child's individual needs.
  • Access to outside agencies e.g. speech and language therapy, educational psychologist etc.


As well as supporting children we also want to support parents. As a result, this page is designed to give parents/carers access to any of the information you may require regarding special educational needs provision at Backwell Junior school.

The SENDCo at West Leigh Infant School and Backwell Church of England Junior School is Ellie Jenkins.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding Special Educational Needs or additional support in class, please see your child's class teacher in the first instance and then the SENDCo via the school office.
