BRUCHE Primary School in Warrington has added to its impressive portfolio of national accolades.
The school has been awarded the National SEND Inclusion Award (SENDIA) in recognition of the high quality education it provides for pupils with SEND (special educational needs and/or disabilities).
The award framework focuses on removing barriers to learning through early identification of SEND, inclusive teaching and leadership and helps schools to evaluate impact to improve classroom practice and pupil outcomes.
The application to the award was led by Year 2 teacher Hannah Kerrigan, who is SEND co-ordinator at the school.
The school had to provide evidence that it had met standards in a range of areas in order to qualify for the award, including ensuring effective everyday teaching and learning for SEND pupils across the school, strong and effective leadership and management of SEND provision and a commitment to involving pupils and parents in decisions about SEND provision and support.
Executive headteacher Chris Jones said: “Hannah really led from the front on this award, which is a fantastic accolade and recognition of the great efforts made by everyone in our school on SEND provision.”
In the spring Bruche was awarded a quality mark for its English and maths teaching and last summer secured a quality award for its science teaching.
Bruche Primary is one of seven primary schools that make up of Warrington Primary Academy Trust (WPAT), a community of more than 2,100 children aged 2 to 11. WPAT was formed in 2016 and quickly developed a national reputation for excellent standards. WPAT provides staff at all of its schools with support, expertise and professional development so that they can provide the very best education standards for their children.
