Special Educational Needs and Disability Information
At Brambles Primary Academy we are committed to making sure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
“Teachers are skilled in breaking down what they [pupils with SEND] need to do into even smaller chunks”
OFSTED - January 2023
We have a strong team identity across the school, with well-being a priority for everyone.
Children who have been identified as having special educational needs and / or disabilities, can get extra help in school. This is called SEN support.
Our Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo) at Brambles Primary Academy is Mrs Marshall
If the school feels that your child may need SEN support, we will discuss this with you and explain the specific support that your child will receive.
If you have any concerns about your child, their class teacher is the best person to speak with, or you can arrange an appointment with the SENDCo via the school office on
Tel: 01484 240 338
We have a range of policies which support children with SEND. These are available on our Policy Page
It may mean that your child is supported in some of the following ways:
- Extra support from an additional adult, perhaps working alongside your child within a small group of other children
- Carefully planned activities which aim to meet your child's specific needs, agreed by the class teacher and SENDCo
- Advice from professionals and / or external agencies who have a specialist knowledge, such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, school nurse (Locala) Early Help Assessment (EHA) Team or specialist teachers.
If your child is identified as needing SEN support, we will:
- Put a support plan in place for your child
- Review your child's progress regularly
- Have regular meetings with parents to discuss progress and future support
