Brampton Primary Academy is a fully inclusive academy in the London Borough of Bexley and follows the inclusive policy of all Bexley schools. At Brampton all children are valued, respected and welcomed to the school whatever their additional educational need. We will support their learning and ensure they are fully included in all school activities, making full use of externally provided agencies where appropriate.
As a school in Bexley, we work in partnership with the Borough to provide a Local Offer for children in need of such support.
Our Whole School Provision Map provides an overview of the various additional interventions we offer to support all learners, as and where appropriate. If you wish to discuss your child’s support interventions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Inclusion Leader. Details of all staff are available on the website.
Additional needs are identified before, on entry or at any point during your child’s time at Brampton. The appropriate intervention, referral or support is then put in place – as per our Whole School Provision Map.
Our Accessibility Plan outlines how we work to ensure that our school is accessible to all learners.
Finally, our School SEN Information Report (updated annually) provides detailed information about our school and our provision.
Intervention teachers teach small groups of children who are not making the progress we expect/not attaining the levels we expect. These teachers liaise with the Inclusion Team and class teachers to devise a differentiated programme that is monitored and reviewed regularly.
Speech therapists are available to support our children as and when required, and work with the Inclusion Lead, class teachers and learning support staff to deliver appropriate plans and interventions across Early Years and Key Stage 1. Such plans and interventions are for children who have been referred, by the school or by a medical professional. These programmes can include speech sound production, language development and social skills, depending on the child’s needs.
Individualised programmes are delivered by trained members of support staff. These are for children who have been referred, by the school or by a medical professional, to be assessed by the Complex Needs and Dyslexia Service. These programmes can include dyslexia assessments/programmes, literacy development programmes depending on the child’s needs.
We have a Learning Mentor who works with our children and families at Brampton. She is available to meet with parents to discuss any issues that they may be having – including, for example, behaviour management, employment, benefits or housing. She will also able to sign-post parents to other organisations that offer support to families.
The purpose of the Local Authority Service is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. Bexley Council’s on line service can be found here:
