Barons Court Primary School and Nursery is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the children within our school. We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them. We equally value all pupils in the school and strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination developing an environment where all children flourish and feel safe. At Barons Court we are committed to inclusion. We strategically plan for improvement ensuring a sense of community and belonging, which offers new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties. This does not mean that we treat all learners in the same way, but that we respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs.
If you wish to discuss your child’s support programmes or receive any further information regarding our provision please do not hesitate to get in touch with your child's Phase Leader.
We are pleased to be working in partnership with our neighbours, Milton House to create a joint sensory room which will benefit both our pupils and the residents of Milton House. We are currently working really hard to plan a wonderful multi-sensory environment with a focus on developing thought and social skills. Multi sensory environments are known to offer children the opportunity to enjoy and control a variety of sensory experiences.
Our sensory room will open up a whole new world for individuals who may experience cognitive and physical impairments, as well as provide a safe environment for our pupils and the residents. Providing such a stimulating environment can:
•Increase concentration and focus attention.
•Develop or reactivate senses of hearing, sight, smell, touch, and taste.
•Heighten awareness and improve alertness.
•Improve coordination and motor skill development.
•Promote cognitive development by increased brain function.
•Lead participants to explore their environment.
•Promote social interactions.
•Increase opportunity for choice and self-determination.
•Improve communication and sharing.
Last but not least, people are happier and have fun!
Watch out for all the exciting developments as we begin to establish this amazing new facility for use by us all!
