Additional Needs

We have a large additional needs offer for pupils with SEN and EAL. Over 10% of our pupil population have an EHCP and 20% have an identified need.

They are supported by our highly trained AND team, within our mainstream offer. We have 30 pupils who are within our Specialist Resourced Provision for Autism, which provides ‘wrap around’ support for our pupils to enable them to succeed in a mainstream environment.

Our pupils thrive in the mainstream, leaving Frederick Bremer with a range of GCSEs and qualifications, moving onto the next stage of their learning.

Access for all

At Frederick Bremer we plan purposefully to include every child in the full curriculum offer. The curriculum at Key Stage 3 and the core curriculum at Key Stage 4 is an entitlement for every child.

For every child to access the full curriculum we prioritise:

  • Teaching reading to all and providing support to ensure that children can read well in order to get the most from their secondary school curriculum
  • Knowledge of every child’s strengths and needs. Every professional at Frederick Bremer has a responsibility to know what support will make the biggest difference for each child and to work hard to implement this
  • Challenge for all. Staff work to ensure that the core knowledge required to access the curriculum is known and prioritised in the classroom to make sure that every child can make progress. More challenging knowledge and skills are also known and understood so that teachers can craft lessons that allow stretch for every child.
  • Personalised and bespoke support where it is needed. Our Additional Needs Department prioritises strong partnerships with families and professionals to tailor our approach where it is needed. This then informs high quality information shared with staff to give children the best possible chance of success in every classroom.
