Specialist Provision Resource Base
At Brookside we are hugely proud of our Riverbank Provision, a multi-sensory nurturing play based curriculum and environment for students with Moderate learning difficulties. The Riverbank specialises in moderate cognition and learning difficulties and speech, Language and Communication difficulties.
The Riverbank offers good and outstanding progress for pupils with special needs. Inclusion opportunities for children within the mainstream school environment. High staff to child ratio with specialist staff who are skilled in special educational needs and disabilities. A fun multi-sensory play based curriculum which responds to the individual needs and interests of each child. Learning focuses on developing and teaching life skills. Personalised learning plans are created for every child. Short, highly differentiated and individualised programmes of learning.
Our Rabbits Provision supports children based in Foundation Stage/KS1. Our Dragonflies and Otters Provision supports children based in KS1 and KS2. Children are grouped according to abilities and needs.
We have a newly renovated outdoor sensory garden that is used by all children, a wooded area which is used for a forest schools curriculum, adventure area to help with children’s gross motor skills, a sensory room and a dedicated speech and language room.
