What the school says...

BBLC does not specialise in making provision for any particular special educational need and does not have any special units. The school aims to provide a flexible and inclusive curriculum for all its pupils.

We have a SENCO to organise and be responsible for co-ordinating SEN provision. The Inclusion team will undertake the co-ordination of provision for our pupils: with each pupil being allocated either a Key Worker or an Inclusion Support Assistant.
Key workers work with those pupils on School Action/+ and ISA's work closely on a 1:1 with Statemented pupils.

Converted to an academy 2011.
