At BCCS we believe that all young people should be able to achieve their very best. Some of our students need additional help to learn. Sometimes this is known as Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
We keep a register of students who require additional help to learn. This register includes all students with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) or Statements as well as any students with identified additional needs who are not meeting the national age related expectations. We will work with the students, teachers, parents and carers as well as outside professionals to ensure these students get the best possible help. This help can be part of our normal inclusive BCCS lessons or in additional specialised lessons.
During our time with us children will grow into young adults. We are committed to supporting our students to becoming happy and independent people. We prioritise being available to our students and providing excellent pastoral care so we may fully support them.
The Government has set out how it wants us to provide for children who have additional needs at school. Our approach meets these expectations.
