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 that also says a DSP would be an appropriate place for them to learn. 
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 'chill' in.
  • A commitment to training all school staff in the needs and education of children with Communication and Interaction issues. 
Some Future Plans:
  • Further development of the class' induction programme and pack for staff, pupils and parents. 
  • The further development of the curriculum
  • Further development of the DSP parent/staff relationship with the involvement of other professionals where appropriate. 
  • Full refurbishment of Blossom classroom and access to a newly installed sensory room.
