Bett Finalists for a 3rd Year in Row!
Holding a pencil is hard work for Jenny, a five year old with cerebral palsy, but she refuses to give up. Her teacher, Mrs Cooper, works with her on a daily basis, using playdough to build up Jenny’s strength in her hand and improve her fine motor skills. After several months of grit and determination, Jenny is able to write a ‘J’. By end of the year, she can write her name legibly. Amazing progress! Yet at the end of the year, Jenny might only be given a disheartening ‘working towards expectations’ under the National Curriculum guidelines as she is unable to write a sentence.
The truth is, when you have a child with special educational needs the jumps up can be very small. In special schools, these needs can also be extremely varied. Classes may be smaller than in a mainstream school but children of the same age can possess a very wide range of abilities and challenges.
We are delighted to be Bett finalists for a 3rd year in row!
