What says..

Everything you could wish for here: sports hall, purpose-built theatre, indoor swimming pool and award-winning classroom block complete with its own weather station, and even a red letter box outside the front door; not to mention dens, zip wires and an assault course. Some trips and treats on Sundays but most activities on site – the banning of hand-held games consoles has been surprisingly well received by the children: ‘Now I have more people to play with,’ said one. Inspired heads of art and DT – you can feel the buzz as you walk in the door, and…

Special Education Needs

Brambletye School has a vibrant learning development department, staffed by a head of learning development, several specialist teachers, and a higher level teaching assistant. When required we work closely with outside agencies such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists. Our specialist teachers tailor their teaching programmes to a child’s specific learning needs, and collaborate with teaching staff to make sure children’s needs are being addressed in mainstream lessons. In addition to in-class support, one-to-one and group sessions are provided. We offer specialist tuition for children with a number of different specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. Typically we offer support with maths, reading, spelling, written language skills, study skills, handwriting, touch-typing and word-processing skills. Additional support is also provided for children who have English as a second language. The views of the individual child and their parents are viewed as paramount to this process.
