Special Education Needs
The Good Schools Guide writes: West of England School is a non-maintained special school catering for pupils who are visually impaired and may have additional disabilities. The school offers a free, three-day multi-professional assessment service for parents and LEAs. The assessment team comprises - consultant paediatrician, consultant ophthalmologist, orthoptist, therapists, mobility officers and specialist teaching staff. Requests for assessments are only accepted from parents. There is a flat on site for parents who require accommodation during the assessment period, or for those visiting the school. The decision to place a child at the school rests with the Local Education Authority in consultation with parents and on the basis of a multi-professional assessment written as a Statement of Special Educational Needs. Pupils follow the national curriculum which is delivered in braille and large print by specialist teachers with support assistants. All children have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and where necessary receive individual training in braille, mobility, and independent living skills. A range of technologies: braille notetakers, screen magnification and readers, voice activated software etc are used. Services available include learning support, low-vision clinics and braille. In 2003 the school was named as an outstanding school and college by Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Schools in his Annual Report.
