Specialist Support at Brickhill Lower School
We believe that all pupils have individual needs which the school is confident of meeting in all but very exceptional circumstances. Some children experience learning difficulties at school, and an early identification of their problems is a key factor in meeting their needs.
Initially the class teacher provides work at an appropriate level with the Special Needs Co-ordinator offering advice.
The progress of each child is carefully monitored and recorded and help is given where there are seen to be difficulties.
At all times parents are kept fully informed of their child’s progress. Sometimes it is necessary to seek specialist help.
Similarly children who are particularly gifted are given additional help and challenges within the context of normal class teaching. Resources in the school are appropriate to cater for the brightest and the least able.
This follows the Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs set out by the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
