For a variety of reasons, some children may experience difficulties in the academy.
Medical conditions, learning difficulties, behaviour problems and speech development are some of the more common concerns which may occur from time to time. Brambles Primary Academy is an inclusive academy in that we aim to provide a range of support for children with special educational or additional needs. Brambles Primary Academy prides itself on trying to match the needs of each individual child with the support they require. If necessary a child may be placed on the Special Educational Needs Register.
Should your child’s teacher have any concerns regarding your child, he/she will arrange to see you to discuss these concerns. This may also include the Academy’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator Mrs Arkle (SENDCo). Our aim is to include parents in the identification, assessment, planning and reviewing of special educational needs for their particular child. This means that parents will be involved at every stage in the decision making process in respect of their child’s needs. A copy of our academy policies are available on request.
At certain stages a child’s teacher may design a programme of work specific to the child’s individual needs. This may involve parents in carrying out activities at home or working alongside their child in the academy.
In addition it may be necessary to gain further advice from outside agencies such as the Learning and Behaviour Support Service or the Psychological Service. The involvement of such specialists would always be organised following consultation with parents.
