At Brookvale Groby Learning Campus, our intention for Special  Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) is to ensure that all children receive a high-quality and ambitious education regardless of need or disability. We believe that it is vital that our pupils are equipped with the tools needed to become independent, inquisitive learners both in and out  of the classroom.  

Through our high quality planning, teaching and provision we: 

  • Pride ourselves on early identification and intervention for SEND to ensure that progress and opportunities are maximized. 
  • Ensure that all children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is  differentiated to enable children to understand the relevance and purpose of learning. 
  • Provide an accessible learning environment which is tailored to the individual needs of all pupils. 
  • Develop children’s independence and life skills 
  • Regularly monitor the progress of children with SEND, using a child-centered approach. 
  • Provide good quality and relevant training for all staff members supporting children with SEND. 
  • Work in partnership with parents and carers. 
  • Work closely with external agencies and other professionals to hone and develop our provision for children with SEND.
  • Students are encouraged to following the school LORIC and CARE ethos

Flexible Learning
The Flexible learning pathway is intended to provide a bespoke learning pathway for some of our most vulnerable students.  Students on this pathway will have lessons in the ‘Hub’ area in place of a fourth option at GCSE.  Lessons will include additional Reading, Literacy and Maths, in conjunction with Study skills, Skills for life (using ASDAN resources) and a bespoke timetable of support in order to meet all the needs of our students.
