Inclusion at Bretforton
Bretforton School is currently working to develop a fully inclusive approach to Teaching and Learning for all pupils. Whilst much of this work is in development, the school is adhering to the policies, procedures and guidance of its sponsor school which is leading and shaping Inclusion in order to develop outstanding practice across the Multi-Academy Trust. Model documentation and information about the team supporting us is available to view here.
Bretforton School values the contribution that every child can make and welcomes the diversity of culture, religion and intellectual style. We are committed to providing an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs and abilities. All children are valued and respected equally as members of the school community. Every effort is made to ensure that pupils identified as having SEND are fully integrated into mainstream classes and have full access to the National Curriculum.
Special Educational Needs
At Bretforton we strive to meet the needs of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities under the 4 main areas of the code of practice (For more information regarding the four areas of need, please see the relevant sections of our SEND Policy) :
Additionally, the Worcestershire Local Offer can be found through the following link:
"...provision for pupils with SEND is a matter for the school as a whole. All teachers and key workers are teachers of pupils with SEN" WCC
More Able Provision
At Bretforton School, any child showing exceptional ability is identified through our assessment process. Parents will be closely involved with the class teacher to agree and set targets and to provide appropriate provision through an Individual Challenge Plan (ICP). More able pupils will be supported through inclusive teaching, extension activities, working with pupils within school of a similar ability and attending workshops for Gifted and Talented pupils arranged in partnership with other local schools.
