A unique feature of Grove House Primary School is that we offer a specialist Resourced Provision for pupils with a visual impairment. Our Local Authority Led Resourced Provision supports pupils across the whole school. In this specialist team, we have qualified teachers of the visually impaired (QTVI), a curriculum Resource officer and vision impaired specialist support assistants (VISSA). They are trained in a range of skills including braille and braille reading, supporting tactile learning 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. The children also have an additional curriculum to ensure they have the opportunity and time to develop skills to become an independent learner and maintain good self-esteem as a vision-impaired person. This additional curriculum includes pre-braille, braille, specialist technology, Independent Living Skills, Social Skills, mobility and the children also take part in Go4it trips that provide opportunities for new experiences and challenges outside of the classroom.
