We recognise that each child is unique, and work carefully to meet individual needs. Where possible these needs are met within mainstream lessons and when necessary, we have specialist staff or interventions.
At Morehall Primary we are also able to welcome children with Visual Impairment (VI), if this school is named on their Education and Health Care Plan.
Our VI is part of the Specialist Teaching Service.
Each child is supported by a teaching assistant and teacher who is qualified in visual impairment.
Our children are included into the class appropriate for their age and partake in all aspects of school life.
Their curriculum, depending on their visual needs, is met through large print or Braille along with tactile and sensory resources. These are produced within the Unit and are personalized for each child.
Along with the curriculum provision, the children have mobility training provided by the Kent Association for the Blind and independence training built into their school day.
Over the years our youngsters have moved on to attend local secondary schools and several have progressed onto university or FE colleges.
Every child has an EHC plan prior to their arrival and we work closely with parents to ensure the link between home and school is positive and supportive.
If you require any further information please contact us.
