Brookfield Primary School is a mainstream school catering for children aged 4-11years.
At our school, we believe that high quality teaching should be differentiated and personalised to meet the individual needs of the majority of the children.
The SEND report below outlines how we cater for children who have additional SEN needs.
Our SEND report sets out the ways in which we support children and families with special educational needs and disabilities. It outlines what you should do if you have any concerns about your child's needs, or if your child has a disability and needs support.
At Brookfield Primary School we make provision for pupils with different types of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities including:
Moderate Learning Difficulties
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Autistic Spectrum Disorders
Development Coordination Disorder
- Sensory Impairment
We are an inclusive organisation, and we will make provision for other needs where we can make all reasonable adjustments including training for all appropriate staff.
Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Joy Burgess.
You are welcome to make an appointment to speak with Mrs Joy Burgess about any concerns that you may have about your child's needs at any time. Please contact either Mrs Victoria Hardy or Mrs Michelle Hough in the school office to arrange an appointment. Mrs Victoria Hardy and Mrs Michelle can be contacted either by calling into school in person or calling (01623) 742285.
The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. Our SENDCo liaises closely with service providers in Derbyshire, and is a point of contact. Parents and young people can use this link to find information about services and advice on how to access them directly.
Special Education Needs Updates and Information for Parents/Carers:
SEND Green Paper
Derbyshire Parent Forum
The future of the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and alternative provision system.
The government has published a green paper (discussion document) on the future of the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and alternative provision system.
DPCV are putting together a Derbyshire response with the views of parent/carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, evidenced through our survey (link below). Through this link families will have the opportunity to look at all the information, some of which is simplified from the 100+ page Green Paper document.
Hot topics include mandatory mediation and a tailored list of schools. Have your say on these and all areas impacting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
Your views are important. Many thanks in advance for completing this survey.
