Hi! We are one class of three that makes up the Complex Needs Resource Base within Frogwell Primary. We are very much a part of Frogwell and extremely proud of what we do and all the pupils that attend our school.
We are a Resource Base for children who have a mixture of needs and who require specialist support within a calm and structured learning environment. All of our pupils have an Education Healthcare Plan (EHCP) or Statement which detail their specific needs and required provision. Many of our pupils have a combination of speech and language difficulties, global/cognitive delay, physical impairment, aspects of autism (but not as a primary need) or require emotional and behavioural support.
We currently have three classes with ages ranging from Reception up to Year 6. Each class has no more than seven pupils, each supported by a specialist teacher and team of experienced teaching assistants that work across the Resource Base with all pupils. Each pupil has a timetable that allows time for various enrichment activities, life skills activities and integration across the mainstream in their age equivalent classes.
"The local authority has supported the school well in its drive to improve. For example, it has assisted the headteacher in checking and improving teaching, and in improving provision for special educational needs and the early years."
"The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. Safeguarding arrangements for pupils meet all requirements. All staff and governors carefully follow the school’s well-developed systems for keeping pupils safe. Senior staff ensure that checks on the welfare of pupils considered vulnerable are fully implemented."
"All staff are skilled in managing pupils’ behaviour and motivating pupils to express their ideas. This is a notable feature in raising the confidence of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, especially in the Resource Base."
"Pupils move carefully and safely around the building. At times their behaviour was impeccable, as for example during assemblies, in the Resource Base and in some classes, especially when enthused by stimulating work. Pupils are especially polite and helpful to visitors."
"Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, including pupils in the Resource Base and several others with more complex needs across the school, also make good progress from their various starting points. Their progress matches that of their peers across the school because they receive good support in class."
Please feel free to email with any questions or comments that you wish to make, we look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks, Mr. T. Filer
