Welcome to our Inclusion Team page.
At Ferrars Junior School we want to make sure children are happy, secure and successful. Sometimes children or their families may need some extra help to achieve this. At Ferrars, there is a team of adults in school who organise and provide additional support for parents, carers and children. Children are given every opportunity to participate in all aspects of school life and are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular clubs, residential trips and all sporting activities.
Mrs McDade is our school Inclusion Manager. She works closely with your child’s teachers to track your child’s progress in school and organise extra support if your child is not achieving the expected level of progress. This support may be provided by adults in school or specialists from outside of school such as Speech and Language Therapists. I am a Mental Health Champion at the school.
If you think your child may need additional support or if you are worried about your child’s progress please talk to your child's class teacher or to Mrs McDade.
Mrs McCullagh is our Family Worker and Mrs Herdman, our Assistant Family Worker. They work with parents, carers and teachers to identify children who are having difficulties and may need emotional support. They run groups for children to help them cope with change and challenging situations. Mrs McCullagh is a Mental Health Champion at the school.
The Inclusion Team also monitor pupil attendance and meet with the Education Welfare Officer to discuss any concerns.
