Special Educational Needs


Topcliffe Primary School’s two Resource Bases are a celebration of successful inclusive practises for children diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)

All children who attend our provisions have an EHCP ( Education Health Care Plan) and are referred to us via the Local Authority Special Educational Needs Assessment and Review team (SENAR).

All referrals received from SENAR are reviewed by Resource Base leads to determine if the child is suitable for our provision. This usually includes a visit to the child in their present setting to provide us with a complete picture of their suitability to access our provision.

Our Resource Bases  incorporate individual child centred learning  packages which take into account the specific needs of our children. Our aim is to enable pupil’s to fulfil their potential and successfully return to full time mainstream provision. To support this we promote strong relationships and effective communication with parents.

The Resource Bases reflect our school’s ethos and ensure all children are fully included in all aspects of school life.

Visits to our Resource Base provision are welcomed, these are run on a monthly basis and can be arranged through our SEN administrator.
