SEND

Jarvis Brook is an inclusive school where we value the aspirations, abilities, attitudes and achievements of all our children. The importance of nurturing a child's social and emotional wellbeing, as well as implementing early and effective support in overcoming barriers to learning is recognised by all staff. We are committed to providing the best possible environment for learning, and to giving each child the opportunity to succeed and to reach the highest level of personal achievement.

We are proud to have been awarded Dyslexia Friendly Status in January 2012 for demonstrating 'dyslexia friendly' practice in the key areas of:
  • Leadership and Management
  • Teaching and Learning
  • The classroom environment
  • Partnership and liaison with parents and carers
The award recognises that good practice for children at risk of dyslexia is good practice for all.
As professionals who care about the learning and welfare of all children, we do all that we can to meet their social and emotional needs. Nurture Enrichment Programmes, run by a professionally trained Specialist Teaching Assistant, provide support to develop positive peer relationships, self-esteem and effective communication skills. Our dedicated Nurture Room, 'The Secret Garden', is the setting for these weekly sessions.
