SENDCO: Mrs Carol Walker
SEND Governors: Mrs Gina Andrewes
Here at Broadfield Primary School we offer a fully inclusive environment for all our students. We pride ourselves on our caring and nurturing community and we believe that through this, young people will be happy, feel safe and ultimately achieve to the best of their ability.
We strive to give all students at Broadfield Primary School a consistently high quality experience within the classroom. This is where we believe the best learning and progress takes place and all support and interventions will begin here with high quality differentiation, a full knowledge and understanding of the students and an exciting and enthusing learning experience.
Students who have additional needs or learning difficulties that are a barrier to their learning will be monitored and supported throughout their time in our school. It is important that students who find learning more challenged are equipped with tools and strategies to enable them to become more independent not only in school but outside and beyond school.
Ultimately, our aim is to ensure that students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities experience a fully inclusive education, with a broad and balanced curriculum within a nurturing community. Additional support is targeted and delivered and assessed on a timely cycle to accelerate progress with the aim of supporting all children to achieve thier potential.
