The disabled pupils and those pupils with complex learning needs, including those who receive enhanced provision, make outstanding progress because specialist medical and learning support is provided by well-qualified and effective support and teaching staff. This support is very carefully and sensitively tailored to meet their individual needs.
The teaching of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, including those in receipt of enhanced provision, is outstanding because all adults, particularly the highly skilled teaching assistants, ensure that pupils receive very appropriate help specific to their needs.
Disabled pupils and those pupils who have special educational needs or more complex learning needs, including those who receive enhanced resourced provision, make outstanding progress due to the targeted support for medical and learning needs from highly experienced teaching and support staff.
The school has very effective partnerships with external agencies and this is helping to ensure disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make good and often outstanding progress.
The school`s high quality, nurturing provision supports pupils who have additional needs very well. Pupils are expertly supported with a wide and varied range of specialist therapies.
The associate head teacher, who leads SEN provision throughout the school, provides a strong leadership in this area. A key to the school`s success is the detailed and knowledgeable understanding of pupils` specific needs and interests. Adults are skilled in building strong relationships with pupils, their parents and carers. They plan carefully for the needs of each pupil and monitor their progress rigorously. Additional funding to support pupils who have SEN and/ or disabilities is used appropriately and they make good progress as a result.
Pupils who have SEN and /or disabilities, many of which are complex, receive effective support. Teachers and teaching assistants have a very clear understanding of their individual needs. Using accurate and detailed information about the pupils` achievement, teachers set individually tailored work for pupils in lessons. This leads to accelerated progress for this group of pupils.
The high proportions of pupils who have SEN and/ or disabilities make good progress. They are supported to overcome barriers to their learning through the excellent use of technology and access to highly skilled staff.
Children who have SEN and/ or disabilities are very well supported. Their needs are identified quickly during close contact with parents before children start school. Activities are planned to give them appropriate support straight away. This means many children catch up quickly.
Springwood Heath Outreach Service was founded in 2003,
following the successful merger of Springwood Primary School and Harold Magnay Special School
for children with physical disabilities.
We became Liverpool's first purpose built inclusive mainstream school with
an enhanced resource provision for children with complex physical/medical difficulties and associated learning needs.
Managed by Mrs Chris Beacall, Springwood Heath Outreach Service draws upon our staff’s years of expertise in working in special needs schools and in mainstream schools.
We are a service to support schools
and early years settings in meeting the needs of children who
have a physical or language impairment.
