Special Educational Needs Information
At Britannia Bridge, we believe passionately in the importance of inclusion and equality
for all children, in a safe environment, where they can grow as independent learners
and well-rounded citizens. The Staff and Governors, in school, endeavour to meet
‘Each and Everyone’s’ needs and development, in order to ensure that they have high
aspirations for themselves, achieve their true potential and feel that they are a valued
member of our school, local and wider community. Our Core Values of HEART
(Happiness, Encouragement, Aspirations, Respect and Teamwork) are at the core of
our school ethos and we ensure that these values are at the heart of our SEND
practices. We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all
learners, whatever their special educational need, age, gender, ethnicity, disability,
impairment, attainment or background.
Our Britannia Bridge Special Education Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is: Miss M. Lewis.
Below are just some examples of the way in which we adapt our curriculum to ensure that each and everyone thrives and achieves the same learning outcome, despite any different starting points, challenges or barriers to learning:
- Quantity – we adapt the number of activities our children are expected to complete.
- Time – we adapt the time allotted, where needed.
- Output – we adapt how our children can respond, during learning.
- Input – we adapt they way we give instructions e.g. through use of visual aids, enlarged text, scaffolds, concrete activities, hands-on learning and pre-teaching.
- Participation – we adapt the extent to which our children are actively involved.
- Difficulty – we adapt the problem type or approach to solving.
- Support – we increase support, where needed. E.g. through Peer Buddies or Adult Support.
