Hyde Park Junior School
At Hyde Park Junior School, we believe a school should be a learning community, a place where everyone has the same chance to develop and succeed, where all should aspire to excellence.
Hyde Park Road
At our school individuality and difference are celebrated and everyone is valued.
As a 21st century school, we are preparing our pupils for a future where they may do jobs that don't exist yet, using technologies not yet invented. We are relentless in pursuing high standards in English and Mathematics but we know we must ensure that our pupils are resilient and have a positive attitude to challenge and change.
We are developing a curriculum that helps them to build up the mental, emotional, social and strategic resources needed to cope well with uncertainty and complexity.

All Plymouth maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need/s and or disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.
We are very proud to have an inclusive environment across the school, which encourages high expectations for all children.
All pupils in school receive high-quality teaching. This means that a range of teaching and learning styles are used and those appropriate learning opportunities are offered for all children, matched to their individual needs.
We offer a wide range of approaches to learning for children with additional needs, which are personalised to the child.
All of our specialist teaching assistants are highly trained. Training includes: speech and language, ASD support, attachment training, Lego therapy, and every one of them is a qualified ELSA (emotional literacy support assistant). Teaching staff are also engaged in regular training opportunities to support children with additional needs, both for the whole staff in house and bespoke to the needs of the children in their classes.
Specialist Teaching Assistants work with specific classes in the mornings, to ensure good relationships are developed with the children. In the afternoons there is a dynamic programme of interventions, regularly reviewed and utilising their key skills and experience to support individuals effectively.
Lunchtimes are staffed by a combination of mealtime assistants and our specialist teaching assistant to ensure consistency of support for vulnerable children across the school day.
If you have a concern about your child's progress and learning or there is something about SEN you would like to discuss you can talk to the class teacher or meet with the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo).
