We're working hard as a team, together with our parents and families, to raise school attendance - it's gone up from 89.7% at the start of the year to 94.2% this week! Well done, but let's keep working together to raise it even higher!!

What is a DSP?
Blossom class is for children who have an Education, Health and Care Plan - usually one that specifically includes a diagnosis of Communication and Interaction issues and/or Autism. Their EHCP will also say that a DSP would be an appropriate place for them to learn, rather than mainstream provision. Children within the DSP have a range of needs. They have the ability to learn both within Blossom class, as well as access other areas of school as and when suitable. King Richard DSP has a maximum of 10 children ranging from Foundation to year 2, with 3 staff.
 
Blossom provision includes:
  • A dedicated classroom at King Richard III Infants and Nursery school, equipped with appropriate resources and providing specialist support and teaching for up to 10 children in a small group or at times on a 1:1 basis. 
  • An appropriate staff to pupil ratio.
  • Opportunities for the children to be integrated into an appropriate mainstream class and/or social time within the school day.
  • A sensory room for children to access when needed throughout the day.
 
Some Future Plans:
  • Further development of the class induction pack for staff, pupils and parents. 
  • The further development of the curriculum areas - ensuring individual targets are taught and met throughout the day.
  • Further development of the DSP parent/staff relationships.
