Meole Brace School is committed to being an inclusive, caring and cheerful community that strives to develop the academic, personal and social skills of all our students to the highest standards.
In most cases this is achieved through high quality teaching being delivered in the classroom. Teaching that is differentiated to meet the needs of the majority of students.
Where additional support is needed our aim is for this to take place in the classroom under the guidance of the subject teacher and, in some cases, with the help of teaching assistants (TAs).
Some students will need something additional to and different from what is provided for the majority of students; this is special educational provision and we will use our best endeavours to ensure that provision is made for those who need it.
A Special Educational Need is when a student has “a learning difficulty or disability that is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age.”
The SEND Team will liaise with teaching staff, feeder schools during transition, outside agencies as well as parents when identifying the needs of students and the best way of ensuring that students are able to access the mainstream curriculum successfully.
Further details about our approach are available in the SEND Information Report on the school’s website. In addition, information on the Shropshire Council approach to SEND is available on the ‘Local Offer’ section of their website. http://www.shropshire.gov.uk/local-offer
