SRB (Specialist Resource Base)
Mile Cross Primary School hosts a Key Stage 1 Learning and Cognition ‘Specialist Resource Base’ (SRB). This is part of Norfolk’s Local Offer for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) (www.norfolk.gov.uk/children-and-families/send-local-offer ).
Further information relating to the programme can be found at www.norfolk.gov.uk/srbs.
The base is staffed by a full-time teacher, Stephanie Howkins, a Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Ruth Pomeroy and a teaching assistant, Rachel Blazer. We provide placements to children from schools throughout the county who are experiencing difficulties with their learning in the classroom. We currently have provision for eight full-time placements; the children spend four full days working in the SRB, and Wednesdays in their home school. Placements generally last for two terms, after which time the children are supported in their return to their classrooms.
The SRB gives the children opportunities to develop independent learning skills by offering an adapted curriculum designed to enhance confidence and self-esteem alongside building basic skills.
If you are a parent interested in SRB provision for your child, please speak to the SENCO at their school.
Visits can be arranged by appointment via our school office. The SRB can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mile Cross Primary School also hosts the SRB Outreach Teacher Susanne McDonnell. Primary outreach can be requested online via www.norfolk.gov.uk/srbs.
