Mission Statement

At Brannel School we aim to ensure that students with special educational needs are given every opportunity to experience success, achievement, and fulfilment in their work. We aim to provide educational, emotional, and technical support in a positive learning environment and provide an inclusive education for students who have difficulty accessing the curriculum.

At Brannel School we are committed to offering a fully inclusive education to ensure the best possible progress for all our students, whatever their needs or abilities. Every teacher is responsible and accountable for all students in their class. Every teacher is a teacher of Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND), providing all children with realistic learning goals in a broad-based, appropriate curriculum and suitably scaffolded work to support their learning and raise aspirations.

We believe that all children with a Special Educational Need and/or Disability (SEND) must have their needs recognised and assessed, with appropriate and timely intervention put in place.

The Special educational needs and disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years (January 2015), states that all children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:

  • Achieve their best.
  • Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives.
  • Make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.

Therefore, all staff have due regard to general duty to promote disability equality. We strive to deliver the appropriate curriculum to:

  • Provide suitable learning challenges.
  • Meet the students diverse learning needs.
  • Remove the barriers to assessment and learning.
  • Have high ambitions and set challenging targets.

At Brannel School every child is part of a family, not just a school, where everyone is valued as an individual and where everyone works together to make a worthwhile contribution to the local community.
