Broadgreen International School - soon to become part of Dixons Academy chain

The secondary aged resourced provision at Broadgreen High School is well established and has a proven track record in providing fully inclusive educational opportunities for its pupils. A dedicated and trained teacher manages the provision on a day-to-day basis and the full range of the national Curriculum is offered. Individual support is available for the pupils when required and considerable emphasis is placed on developing independence skills. A full range of support services are available for direct support and consultation and the school is fully accessible. 

A large number of pupils with needs associated with Autistic Spectrum Disorders are educated in local mainstream schools. This school maintains close links with Abbot’s Lea Special School and provide specialist support for the identified pupils. Trained teachers and support staff plan and deliver the curriculum and social aspects of school life to match the individual needs of the pupil.

Knotty Ash Primary is a resourced schools for pupils with profound hearing impairment who require sign support to access the curriculum. The two schools have received both regional and national recognition of the work they undertake and good OFSTED inspections. The resourced provision in each of the schools is co-ordinated by a fully trained specialist teacher of the deaf and includes specialist teaching staff, support assistants and external support from the Local Authority sensory support service, educational psychologists and specialist medical services.  

 Pupils access the full subject range of the National Curriculum with sign support and the appropriate individual modifications and differentiation based on the individual pupil’s needs. Regular reviews each term evaluate the pupil’s progress and agree new strategies and targets which are included in an Individual Education Plan (IEP).

 A key facet of the resourced provision for pupils with hearing impairments is to enable pupils access specialist support and the curriculum they need whilst being a valued and active member of the mainstream school community.
