Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Our aim at Belvidere is to ensure that all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, get the quality education they are entitled to. As a school we want our students to achieve their best, become confident individuals and be successfully prepared for their transition into adulthood. We want to give everyone equal life chances and ensure our young people with SEND are supported to achieve paid employment, independent living, good health, friendships, relationships and community inclusion.

We aim to ensure all students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, as well as developing their basic skills through interventions to enable them to access the curriculum as independently as possible. The SENDCo is based in the Learning Support Department as are the team of Teaching Assistants who support our students across the curriculum. As an inclusive school all staff are invested in supporting our students with SEND through quality first teaching and targeted interventions.

If you would like to discuss any SEND related issues, please feel free to contact our SENDCo, Katie Wrenshall-Jones by emailing SEND@belvidere.shropshire.sch.uk 

Any complaints will be dealt with under the schools complaints procedure. Please contact the SENDCo in the first instance.

Year 6 EHCP Students - SEND Information

Arrangements for individual visits for prospective Year 6 EHCP students 

Choosing the right school for your child is very important and even more so when they have special educational needs.

Unfortunately we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Open Evening. We are still offering tours of the school and have increased the number of dates and times so these can be done safely. This should help to spread the number of people visiting the school, meaning we can help ensure there are fewer guests attending each tour.
We are aware of the importance of this event but trust that you will understand the need for caution in these challenging and unpredictable times.

There will be daily tours of our school from Monday 4th – Friday 15th October 2021. Led by our friendly and knowledgeable Student Leader Ambassadors, visitors have the opportunity to see Belvidere in action on a normal working day and to meet with a member of our senior leadership team.

The tour schedule will be as below:
Monday 4th October - 9.15/11.30/16.00
Tuesday 5th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Wednesday 6th – 9.45/11.45
Thursday 7th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Friday 8th – 9.15/11.30

Monday 11th - 9.15/11.30/16.00
Tuesday 12th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Wednesday 13th – 9.45/11.45
Thursday 14th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Friday 15th – 9.15/11.30

Please contact the school on (01743) 235073 or email reception@belvidere.shropshire.sch.uk to arrange an appointment. Booking is essential for our Open Day Tours as places are limited. Alternative arrangements can be made if dates/times are not convenient.

If your child has an EHCP and you would like the opportunity to visit the school at another time then please book an appointment here.
