Brize Norton Primary School strives to be an inclusive school and provides support for children with a wide range of special educational needs including those with:
- Communication and interaction needs; this includes children who have speech language and communication difficulties including autistic spectrum conditions.
- Cognition and Learning needs; this includes children who have learning difficulties and specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs
- Sensory and/or Physical needs; this includes children who have visual or hearing needs, or a physical disability that affects their learning
The range of support deployed will be tailored to individual need following thorough assessment by internal or external agencies. It is designed to promote students working towards becoming independent and resilient learners and should not be seen in isolation.
For more information, download our School Local Offer or contact Mrs Kerry Mills, Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) via the school office.
Children with an Education and Health Care Plan are given priority in admissions.
We ensure that children with Special Educational Needs are fully included in school life, able to be involved in all school learning and activities. We look closely at their progress academically and in other areas and adjust the support provided regularly, to ensure that they are making progress, are happy and are doing as well as they can.
