Curriculum, staffing and interventions

Curriculum, staffing and interventions

At Blossomfield, children follow the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum in nursery and reception, and the National curriculum in years 1 and 2.


At Blossomfield our Teaching Assistants support children with their learning. They may take individuals or small groups or class groups. Some children at times need to learn in a calmer, less stimulating environment than a busy classroom and a teaching assistant may work with them on a 1:1 basis in a smaller room such as the library. Our teaching assistants also run interventions such as;

  • Beam which is a physical programme aimed at increasing a child’s core stability which can help with concentration and gross and fine motor skills
  • Dancing Bears which is a daily phonics programme
  • Action words which is a reading programme with physical prompts
  • Spellwise which is a very structured daily phonics programme
  • Mathemagicians which is a school run programme for targeted groups of children for a specific aspect of maths for example problem solving with more able mathematicians or preteaching with those finding maths a challenge
  • Busy Bees which is a school led phonics, writing, comprehension or handwriting programme for targeted children for a specific aspect of their literacy learning
  • Lego club which is a specific intervention for supporting children with social communication

Some children may need specialist equipment such as a sensory cushion, sloping desk, coloured reading trackers or visual cue cards to help with their learning. These are just some examples of specialist equipment we use at Blossomfield.

Our FKS is fully accessible and most of our main school building is accessible for most children.                                            

We have a disabled toilet and shower for use by children who may need it. You can read further about our accessibility policy on the website.




All staff including lunchtime supervisers and Blossomfield Childcare staff attend regular whole staff training on Inset days or whole staff meetings. Recently these have included;

  • Working with children on the autistic spectrum
  • Working with children with attachment issues


In addition Mrs Katy Morrison has achieved the National Award for Special educational needs coordinators and attends the regular updates provided by Solihull local authority and Synergy collaborative. Some staff have also received specific training, including behaviour management techniques, supporting children with their social and emotional needs and supporting children with visual and hearing impairments, related to the needs of specific children.

Mrs Yvonne Cooper is the Autism lead for Blossomfield. She works with staff to support children, and families both diagnosed and going through the diagnosis process.

Mrs Rachel Lee is the FKS SENCO lead and works closely with Mrs Morrison to identify and support children in FKS who may have a special educational need.
