Consultation on developing a Resourced Provision at Fearnville Primary School

This message has been sent on behalf of Fearnville Primary school who are consulting to open a new resourced provision.

Any questions or queries regarding this should be directed to : office@fearnville.bradford.sch.uk

What are we consulting on?

  • Developing a new 12 placed Resourced Provision (RP-LA) for primary aged children with Social Emotional Mental Health Needs (SEMH) at Fearnville Primary School.  

This provision will be staffed and managed centrally by the Local Authority. The provision will be part of the school and its ethos. Pupils accessing the provision will be on the roll of the school. The school and the teacher in charge of the RP-LA will work closely together to ensure pupils have individual learning opportunities and are able to access as much mainstream education as the individual pupil is able to, in order to meet their needs.

Fearnville Primary School

At Fearnville we believe all children will succeed.

Working closely with families, sharing our ethos and vision, we are building a sound foundation for our children’s learning and development. We will achieve this through a calm, happy, learning environment, which meets children’s social and emotional needs.  Our excellent staff engage in curriculum design to ensure it excites and motivates children’s learning. We aim to instill a love of lifelong learning that develops the whole child.

We work closely with the Local Authority to support Children and Young People with an Education and Health Care Plan in order to give them the best possible learning journey.

We feel it is important to work in collaboration with parents and carers to make sure we provide the best possible education for all our pupils. To achieve this, we ensure that the teaching matches the child’s needs, which enables all pupils to make progress. Some children may require a more individualised approach to learning in order to make progress in school and this may be due to a host of reasons, Special Educational Needs (SEN) being one.

Many children who have an EHCP can have their needs met within a mainstream school but for some pupil’s additional support is required in specialist provision, which is why we are consulting on opening a Resourced Provision at our school.  

If approved, the plan is to convert the former caretaker’s cottage to house this provision.

The Local authority are supporting this and will project manage and fund this development from the High Needs Capital Funding. 

Bradford has a range of specialist provision such as:

  • Special Schools
  • Early Years Enhanced Provision
  • Resourced Provisions

What is a Resourced Provision?

The provisions are within a mainstream school, designed to provide specialist and targeted support for children and young people with an EHCP. Children accessing a RP will be on the roll of the mainstream school and will be fully supported by the specialist RP staff and the staff of the mainstream school working in partnership.
