At Bellfield Primary School, we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum, which seeks to inspire and motivate all learners.
If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we teach in a way a child can learn.
The Rainbow Room is a place where children have the opportunity to grow in confidence and become successful learners in our school community.
At Bellfield Primary School, we recognise that each child has a variety of abilities and that children with SEND will require additional support, to enable them to access a broad and balanced curriculum. All children at our school are valued and respected and we respond with sensitivity to their individual needs whilst encouraging them to achieve to the best of their ability.
Children’s learning is focused on basic skills in Literacy, Mathematics, Phonics, Fine/gross motor movements and Social interaction skills development whilst at the same time giving opportunities for them to develop skills and knowledge in the wider curriculum.
The Rainbow Room curriculum is also designed to allow for weekly ‘life skills’ lessons.
Life skills lessons include shopping, reading a timetable, learning to tie shoelaces, learning to tell the time, baking, cooking, basic health and hygiene, links with the local elderly residential home, gardening and growing their own vegetables. (These are just a few examples)
Pupils in the Rainbow Room also follow daily speech and language programmes. Programmes are devised and overseen by our Private Speech Therapist service.
Our SENDCo oversees the teaching sequence to ensure pupils are meeting the National Curriculum requirements, as well as their individual educational needs of each pupil.
