Belmont Academy VI Resource Provision
Our aim is to support children to become independent learners.
Belmont Academy has supported children with a vision impairment for 11 years. We offer a specialist resourced provision for pupils with a visual impairment. In this specialist team, we have qualified teachers of the visually impaired (QTVI), a Habilitation Specialist, a curriculum resource assistant and vision impaired specialist support assistants. All programmes and equipment are provided to suit each pupil’s specific needs in all areas of the curriculum in Braille or modified print.
Pupils with a visual impairment work alongside their peers in the mainstream classroom. The children also have an additional curriculum to ensure they have the opportunity and time to develop skills to become an independent learner and maintain good self-esteem as a vision-impaired person. This additional curriculum includes pre-braille, braille, specialist technology, Independent Living Skills, Social Skills and orientation and mobility.
We recently commissioned an audit of our Visual Impairment provision to ensure that we are providing the highes quality offer to our VI pupils. Please see a copy of the final report below.
