Welcome to

Bidbury Infant School



At Bidbury Infant School, we believe that all children have the right to receive an education which enables them to fulfil their potential from their individual starting points. All children at Bidbury have their full curriculum entitlement.  Through high quality teaching, planning and provision we ensure:

  • Needs are identified early and swiftly acted upon. This is done in  partnership with professionals and parents.
  • Children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which is appropriately adapted to enable children to achieve and make progress.
  • Provide an accessible learning environment, which is tailored to the needs of all pupils.
  • Timely monitoring of the progress of children with SEND
  • We work closely with external agencies and other professionals to ensure there is a collaborative approach to support children with SEND and are relentless in our pursuit for support for our children.



At Bidbury Infant School, every teacher is a teacher of SEND. Inclusion is at the heart of our school. Our provision is tailored through collaboration of all stakeholders and most importantly, the child.

Pupils with SEND will:

  • Be included in all aspects of the school day and beyond
  • Be provided with quality first teaching, adapted to meet their needs
  • Be represented and have a voice.

Pupils with SEND may:

  • Have timely 1-1 or small group support to enable access to the curriculum.
  • Have opportunities to pre learn, practise, rehearse, revisit and  embed knowledge and skills across all subjects in the curriculum.
  • Receive support through targeted intervention.
  • Have support from the Home School Link Worker or take part in social, emotional and mental health interventions such as ELSA or Lego Therapy.
  • Receive additional support from our Speech and Language Therapists.
  • Work alongside external agencies such as Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Educational Psychologist.



As a result of our provision, children at Bidbury Infant School:

  • Have a sense of belonging.

  • Show confidence and resilience in their learning.
  • Demonstrate high levels of engagement in their learning.
  • Develop independence strategies, both academically and vocationally, to support them in daily life and beyond.
  • Make progress from their relative starting points and are ambitious to achieve in line with or above their peers, as result of the use of targeted resources and intervention to meet their individual needs.
