At Moorfield Primary School, we have a Resource Base Provision. The unit provides support for children with an Education and Health Care Plan who require a combination of specialist provision and mainstream experiences.
Where appropriate, children in our Resource Base access provision in the mainstream school and continue to interact with their peers at lunch time, to support their academic progress and their social and emotional learning journey.
If you wish to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact our Inclusion Lead Gareth Swire: firstname.lastname@example.org
Resourced SEND provision at Moorfield Primary School is for primary aged children with an Education, Health and Care Plan which describes complex needs, which might include moderate learning difficulties, autism, speech and language needs, global developmental delay, ADHD and attachment disorder.
Places are allocated by the Local Authority and the school is identified in the Education Health Care Plan.
Moorfield Primary School has an additionally resourced provision within the mainstream school which provides education for children with an Education, Health and Care Plan. Moorfield Resourced provision is made up of two SEND classes called the Kaleidoscope classes. There are two Kaleidoscope classes: – A KS1 class for Year 1 and Year 2 children and a KS2 Class of Year 3 to Year 6 children.
The KS1 class has 8 places and the KS2 class has 12 places.
The children are taught by a SEND team of teachers and teaching assistants.
The children within the Kaleidoscope SEND resourced setting receive the majority of their learning within the classroom setting, but can access inclusion opportunities into mainstream dependant on each individual child’s needs.
All children access assemblies, playtimes and lunchtimes within the mainstream setting.
The SEND Resourced provision is in the centre of Moorfield Primary School. Your child can access smaller class sizes with more adult support who tailor the curriculum to meet individual needs.
Lessons are delivered on a one to one, group and whole class basis.
Inclusion into a mainstream school for break times, lunchtimes and assemblies.
The curriculum looks at the development of the whole child using multi-sensory approaches.
It has access to outside agencies with weekly visits from speech and language therapists.
These vulnerable children thrive on continuity and consistency within the classroom. This encourages the making of relationships and establishment of routines.
