Special Education Needs

Heathfield is a fully inclusive school which provides: high levels of support (13 TAs at present) allowing higher staff/pupil ratios than normal. We have a wealth of experience, gained over 15 years of inclusive practice, dealing with the inclusion of children who have: complex learning difficulties; problems with fine/ gross motor skills; speech and language difficulties, and emotional difficulties. We offer inclusive provision and wrap-around care for pupils from 3-11 years. Our facilities include three sets of assisted toilets to allow access in all parts of the school; and full access with ramped approaches for all external entrances and widened doors to playgrounds etc. We have: ongoing links with Beaumont Hill Special School for sharing expertise and advice; well developed assessment and pupil tracking; and high levels of achievement throughout the school which resulted in the highest added value in the LA in 2003-4. We offer: small group work and constant high levels of support; help with the development of gross and fine motor skills to deal with language difficulties; finely tuned programs of study to support personalized learning; and provision for the talented and gifted children, through small group support and dedicated teacher. There is a vibrant ethos of ‘I Can..’, which applies to all in the school.
