Consultation on proposal for Specialist Resources Base at Greyfriars Academy

Posted on Thursday, January 9th, 2020

As part of Norfolk’s developing provision for children with Special Educational Needs,  Greyfriars Academy has been proposed as a location for a new Specialist Resources Base (SRB) for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

As you are aware, Greyfriars is a fully inclusive school and we believe that this development would  enhance education for all our pupils.

We would greatly appreciate your views and responses as part of this consultation process.

Please see the Consultation Document for further details and to access the online survey.

Greyfriars is awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark!

Posted on Wednesday, November 27th, 2019

“Inclusion promotes equal opportunities for all pupils, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background. It pays particular attention to the provision made for, and the achievement of, different groups of pupils within a school and any pupils who are at risk of disaffection and exclusion.”

Taken from IQM’s website:  https://iqmaward.com/ 

 

We are delighted to have been awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark!  We’ve been spending time talking to staff, parents and pupils to evaluate our strengths and areas for development in our journey towards being a truly inclusive school.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the evaluation process, your opinions are very valuable and help us continue to develop our practice.

We’re really proud of all our school community.  Their dedication to providing quality support for all children really shines through in the report.

We have identified areas which we’d like to develop further and will be working hard to achieve this over the next year.

Norfolk Area draft SEND Strategy

Posted on Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

Have you seen Norfolk’s draft SEND strategy?  It sets out Norfolk’s plans for the next three years to develop SEND provision across the County, including the development of three new Special Schools and 170 extra Specialist Resource Base places across the County.  At the recent SEND transformation project event we attended, there was a very positive and determined atmosphere of everyone working together to ensure the best provision for children with SEND.

The strategy is available on the Local Offer website (see below).  If you haven’t looked at the Local Offer website recently, please do!  It gives lots of information about SEND services and support in our area.
