How will The Bridge School support my child with special needs?

Every child who comes to The Bridge School has a Statement of Special Educational Needs which provides a full assessment of your child's special needs. From September 2014 this will be an Education, Health, Care Plan (EHCP) which is the new document resulting from a statutory assessment of your child's special needs. 

The Bridge school staff will talk to you about these assessments and ensure that we plan for your child or young person's needs with that information. We also do home visits, liaise with any professionals that have worked or assessed your child and observe your child in any previous setting or at home. All this planning helps us to know your child or young person's interests and dislikes, your views and family needs and then we can set up support in the classroom and in liaison with yourselves.
