Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Fordbridge Community Primary School is a larger than average, fully inclusive mainstream primary school, that is committed to providing the best education possible to all of our pupils. We strive to ensure that all pupils achieve their potential: personally, socially, emotionally and academically, in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs).
The school has gained the Dingley Kite mark, for being an inclusive setting. We have supported a large amount of children, with a wide range of additional needs including physical impairments (muscular dystrophy), visual impairments (including cerebral visual impairment), hearing impairments, autism, dyslexia, diabetes, epilepsy, global delay, cerebral palsy, learning difficulties and speech and language difficulties. At Fordbridge Community Primary School all pupils are fully included and take an active part in everyday activities.
We employ a speech and language therapist for one day a week. They support children from across the school and also work with staff, developing their CPD.
