|Conditions within this area of need||Our Offer|
Worthinghead has full wheelchair access to manoeuvre around the whole school. Children who use wheelchairs usually have funding for 1:1 support through an EHCP. We have a disabled toilet with shower facilities. Externally, we have ramp access. All children with physical impairments are encouraged to be as inclusive and independent as possible. With 1:1 support through the EHCP, we are able to offer support with any physiotherapy exercises. Children needing a wheelchair or other mobility aids will have a care plan and regular reviews with healthcare professionals to ensure we meet needs.
The Bradford Physical and Medical Team and Occupational Health will help the school to provide the correct care, approach and equipment.
|Other physical needs||
Children with any physical disability will be given the appropriate care through a care plan which is devised with the school and healthcare professionals. We are able (with training from health professionals) to cater for a wide variety of physical needs due to the school being on one level and full ramp access externally. We have a wet room and medical room.
For DCD and other gross motor disabilities, we can support Occupational Health Therapists with regular sessions to practise balance and strength. Our Mental Health Champion practices yoga and can offer this. We can also offer a gross motor package written by Occupational Health Therapists called "ALPS" which aims to target younger children with a view to correcting gross motor skill deficiency into the normal range.
We offer safe storage of hearing aid batteries and equipment. We work closely with the Physical and Medical Team from Bradford to ensure we have the correct equipment for children with difficulties hearing - such as microphones for teachers. Teachers will place children where they are more likely to engage - such as facing the front, sitting in a noise reduced area where possible. Conversations with parents and the child will be ongoing.
|Sight||We provide care for visually impaired children who need larger texts, raised writing areas and adult support (if an EHCP is in place).|
