Use of technology in the classroom

As ICT underpins today's modern lifestyle it is essential that all students gain the confidence and ability, that they need in this subject, to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world.

At BSB this is achieved in both the Primary and Secondary School by the daily use of the well-equipped ICT suites, which have laptops and Chromebooks for cross-curricular use, by the use of the interactive whiteboards, iPads and a wealth of educational software and internet based learning, which is centrally controlled to filter out inappropriate websites.

Learning support offered

The SEN Department at BSB provides teachers with guidance to adapt their lessons to specific needs and individual support guidelines through the development of Individual Educational Plans and subsequent regular review. There are a number of targeted support sessions within Primary and in Secondary, this type of support takes place as often as possible via in-class support rather than withdrawing students from their lessons. BSB also liaises with external agencies such as speech therapists for Communication and Interaction Needs.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

BSB recognises that there are students who have a high academic ability whether it is in one field or multiple fields (able), students who have an exceptionally high academic ability whether it is in one field or multiple fields (gifted), and students who have an exceptional ability in an expressive or creative area (talented). These students must be identified, challenged and supported in order to ensure that their individual needs are met within, and outside, the curriculum. BSB recognises that any special talents and abilities should be identified early, monitored, and developed throughout all Key Stages.
