Dyslexic children and others who have Special Learning Difficulties are all given extra support if that is what is needed in order for them to access the main curriculum. Obviously, a School such as Bromsgrove cannot cater for all, but we pride ourselves on our achievements with those for whom the gentle, nurturing approach is essential. Rigour and the understanding of individual needs co-exist.
Special Educational Needs Provision at Bromsgrove School
At Bromsgrove School we are committed to ensuring that our curriculum, extra-curricular program and facilities are accessible for all our students, staff and visitors. We pride ourselves on being able to provide a rich and stimulating environment for students, and take great care to meet the needs and support the aspirations of those with special educational needs. Bromsgrove School adheres to the requirement of the Equality Act 2010 to make “reasonable adjustment” in order to fully meet the needs of any prospective or current student. It is the School’s mission that our motto “flair, discipline and academic rigour” is applicable to all at Bromsgrove.
SEN currently catered for at Bromsgrove
We currently have students attending the school with the following SEN:
• Asperger’s Syndrome
• Non-Verbal Learning Disorder
• Emotional needs
• Mental Health needs
• Limited mobility
• Hearing impairment
• Vision impairment
• A range of medical needs
All teaching staff are trained to support the above needs and this training is regularly updated through INSET and CPD. Teachers work in close contact with the Curriculum Support departments of all three sites, in order to ensure that students, both with identifiable needs and those who simply require a little additional support, are able to thrive both academically and pastorally.
Accessibility of Bromsgrove School facilities
We are constantly updating and changing our site and these changes provide our pupils, staff and visitors with an increasingly accessible landscape. Some of our buildings are, however, listed and these may be of limited accessibility for those with restricted mobility. Due to the size of our campus, we are confident that, should the need arise, we would be able to cater for a student who uses a wheelchair or other mobility aid.
