Brinkworth Earl Danby’s caters for children of all ability levels. Special Educational Needs is defined as a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age and/or disability which either prevents or hinders a child from making use of educational facilities of a kind provided for children of the same age.
The aim of the Special Needs provision at Brinkworth Earl Danby’s is to ensure that every child, regardless of their academic ability, has access to a broad and balanced curriculum. We believe that all children are special and that meeting every pupil’s needs is a shared responsibility with school and parents working together in partnership to ensure the needs of the child can be better supported.
Children who require more support are initially placed on a concern sheet and monitored and assessed carefully by their class teacher. Should this indicate the need for more help, there is a Code of Practice, which is followed.
At all stages, parents are kept informed and asked for support and input to help their child.
Brinkworth Earl Danby’s has a nominated person responsible for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Wheelchair access, toilets for wheelchair users and visibility panels are available at both sites. In order to cater for a range of needs & disabilities, we work with outside agencies to support our children. These include Speech & Language therapists, autism outreach workers, Educational Psychologists and the SEND team.
