Building Futures. Achieving Greatness.
Aims and Objectives
At Bewick Bridge we are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils and place emphasis on raising the achievement of all children.
In the academic year 2018-19 1.24% of our children have an Education, Health & Care Plan and 5% of our children are on the SEND support register.
Some pupils will, permanently or from time to time, have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of their age. Some may have disabilities, which prevent or hinder them from making use of the facilities provided for our pupils. We will give these pupils individual consideration and make reasonable adjustments, working in partnership with home, school or other agencies as necessary.
The governor’s intention is that the needs of all pupils, including those with SEND, are met as soon as possible after entry to the school. All pupils, whether they have SEND or not, must have an equal opportunity to participate in the broad and balanced curriculum of the school (including the National Curriculum) and all activities. Pupils with SEND will be encouraged to become independent and take responsibility within the school.
Everyone in the school community, governors, staff, pupils and parents, have a positive and active part to play in achieving this aim:<
Bewick Bridge uses the Graduated Response approach to provide help for pupils with special educational needs as stated by the Code of Practice (2014).
