Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Home / Curriculum / Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Dean Trust Rose Bridge is a very inclusive school. Children with a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities are successfully included in our mainstream setting, with varying degrees of support.

For children hoping to, or about to, join Dean Trust Rose Bridge, there is a significant amount of liaison between us and your child’s current school to ensure that the transition is a smooth as possible.

All pupils with SEND are fully timetabled within the school timetable, including mixed ability tutor groups, ability sets and, in the later years, the option groups for the Key Stage 4 curriculum. The school receives funding for pupils on an Education Health Care Plan and this is delegated to meet each child’s needs according to their Pupil Support Plan, reviewed annually, which is produced in partnership with the Local Authority. We have outstanding links with the Local Authority and many other specialist support agencies. They complement our own experience and expertise in meeting the needs of all our children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, including the assessment of any child whose needs may emerge during secondary education.

We ensure that all pupils with any disability have full access to all facilities and the whole curriculum and make it a priority that in any design, changes or implementation of such, our pupils with SEND are catered for.

For further information on our provision for pupils with SEND, please contact our SENDco, Mrs Kelly, on 01942 510712 (ext: 8016), or via office@deantrustrosebridge.co.uk
