Welcome to Farney Close Primary School.
We are very excited to be launching our Primary provision in September 2021. The provision is set within our grounds and initially will contain a classroom for 8 children in years 5 and 6, bathroom facilities, a kitchen, therapy room, breakout area and staff room. This area is being totally refurbished with money donated via the Wellesley Charitable Foundation.
The placement of our children in our primary provision is arranged via our Referrals and Inclusion officer with educative assessments taking place with our SENCO prior to the child formally being offered a place.
All of our Primary children will have an Education Health and Care plan and experience a range of needs including:
- Social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) (a sub-type of ADHD)
- Asperger’s Syndrome (High level functioning)
- Autism (ASC) (where challenging behaviours are the primary need)
- Conduct Disorder (CD)
- Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
- Speech and Language Difficulties including social communication and interaction.
At Farney Close we strongly believe that one’s whole day is a learning experience and that the behaviour and events that occur are all a learning opportunity. We will be working with our Primary children to support them in reflecting, understanding their emotions and learning how to make the best choices for both themselves and others. This will also involve us helping them to find strategies to manage their behaviour and learn how best to self-regulate.
The National Curriculum will be followed and adapted according to each child’s individual needs. This is aimed at establishing confidence in children that they can access education and in doing so we can prepare them for life within our secondary provision or alternative school placement.
Each child’s individual, personal and sensory needs will be met via a personalised, differentiated timetable, ensuring breaks and physical activity are crafted in, as appropriate, to ensure that the children remain engaged with their learning.
Along with the academic learning we will ensure that they have opportunity to access various onsite resource such as our sports hall, our sensory room (The HUSH), cookery department and extensive grounds. Our Enrichment coordinator will take the children for at least half a day a week to offer them activities which will broaden their experiences.
Our Art Therapist will spend a half a day a week within the Primary provision offering play as well as Art Therapy. Our Speech and Language therapist and our SENCO will also be working within this department and Lego therapy will also be on offer.
