Barley Croft is able to offer eligible pupils placement within the Designated Specialist Provision (DSP) if appropriate and where agreed by the Local Authority.
The DSP is a specialist provision seen as an integral part of Barley Croft. It offers pupils an appropriate curriculum based upon the National Curriculum. The individual needs and learning styles of students will determine the strategies used. This may include 1:1 and small group learning, integrated individual programmes of work as suggested by therapists and other professionals, signing and teaching in small steps and the use of alternative communication methods (including PECS and technology assisted).
The DSP lead teacher, in conjunction with the SENCo ensures that the Statement/ EHC Plan provision recommendations are implemented, monitored and reviewed.
