Focus Provision: The Nest

Focus Provision: The Nest

The Nest

At Bluecoat Primary Academy we have a Focused Provision (a specialist provision) called “The Nest”. This is a teaching and learning provision for children with complex additional needs with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Our purpose-built provision opened in 2015 and serves our school community. The Nest places vary each year. Each place is allocated by the Local Authority SEND Team in liaison with school. 

The aim of The Nest is to provide an inclusive education for our children with the greatest need. The emphasis is on academic steps of progress together with developing the children’s social and emotional needs, speech, language and communication needs and developing each child’s levels of independence.

Each child has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and some children may have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Each child receives an entitlement of the Nest – its daily routines and structures within a Primary curriculum but also individualised learning to match each child’s needs.

The Nest is led by Mrs Flewit and Mrs Poxon. All have experience across a wide range of SEND strategies and practice. All members of the team working in The Next have a passion and understanding for the children in their care and see it as their role to be the children’s advocates.

We work in liaison with The Inclusive Education Services including the ASD Team and Educational Psychology as well as NHS services such as Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.
We continually review our provision to ensure we are implementing best practice in all areas of teaching and learning to ensure all our pupils can “STRIVE for Life in all its fullness”.
