Bearbrook Combined School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust




  • Our SEND children are happy, safe and have their needs met
  • We develop safe learning environments where difference and diversity is embraced and all pupils are respected and respectful
  • Through embracing restorative practices, those children with social, emotional and mental health needs can thrive
  • We are driven by the needs of the children, not the label.
  • Children have a voice and feel heard – they are involved in decisions made about themselves
  • Staff are empathic, supportive and compassionate and create effective learning opportunities for all
  • Parents feel listened to, supported and play an important role in decision making about their child
  • Early intervention means that we can close emerging gaps early and/or identify needs and implement support quickly
  • Relationships between staff, pupils, parents and wider professionals are at the heart of everything we do.
