Brookfields School delivers educational programmes through a multi-disciplinary approach. For pupils with complex needs, this approach is at the heart of their education.
The child’s parents are seen as an essential and integral member of this team. At Brookfields School, each pupil’s team is made up from a range of appropriate professionals such as the child’s teacher, Support Assistants, Physiotherapist, Speech & Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist and Nurse. In addition, some pupils will also have involvement from the schools Family Support Worker, Autism Support Worker or a representative from the Schools Autism & Behaviour Support Services. For pupils who are part of the schools Sensory Resource, there will also be involvement from Qualified Teacher’s of the Hearing and Visually Impaired.
Each member of this team has an essential and valuable contribution to make in the identification of the learning aims for each child, as well as the delivery of those aims across all areas of the curriculum, learning opportunities and activities. Members of this team are also able to support the child in the home to ensure that there is a continuity of approach between home and school.
