Resource Provision

A unique feature of Grove House Primary School is that we offer a specialist resource centre for pupils with a visual impairment. Our Local Authority Led Resourced Provision currently supports pupils across the whole school. In this specialist team we have one lead qualified teachers of the visually impaired and ten specially trained support assistants. Staff in this provision have a range of skills including being able to read and record using braille, as well being able to use specialist equipment to modify resources so that all learners can access the curriculum.

For most of the school day, pupils with a visual impairment work alongside their peers in class. Sometimes they attend more specialist lesson to help them develop specialist skills such as Brailletouch typingdaily living or mobility skills. The children also take part in Go4it activity days which give opportunities for new experiences and challenges outside the classroom!
