A unique feature of Grove House Primary School is that we offer a specialist resource centre for pupils with a visual impairment. Our Additionally Resourced Centre (or ARC) currently supports pupils across the whole school. We have a team of two qualified teachers of the visually impaired and ten specially trained support assistants. All the ARC staff are 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 Sometimes they are withdrawn for additional curriculum opportunities to develop specialist skills such as Braille, touch typing, daily living or mobility skills. The children also take part in Go4it activity days which give opportunities for new experiences and challenges outside the classroom!
