Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Vision Lead

Outline of the Vision Lead Role at Beckfoot Phoenix

My purpose of a Vision Leader in the school is to:
  • Ensure that all of the visual impaired pupils are being provided with an effective teaching strategy.
  • To help promote each pupil to learn effectively and to encourage independency, enjoyment and engagement in whatever they are learning.
  • To encourage pupils to be happy and confident.
I will ensure this by making sure:
  • There are stimulating resources to help with the pupils learning. Example- Sensory VI Story Books.
  • Every visual impaired pupil works with a Vision Lead or Champion at least once a week, to implement the pupils individual visual impaired targets.
  • Each visual impaired pupil has an up to date VI pen portrait and that a multi-sensory curriculum is used to allow pupils to use their functional vision, as well as their senses, to explore their immediate world around them on a daily basis.
  • Sighted guiding is implemented each day with a our able bodies visual impaired  pupils.
  • Cane skills are used on a daily basis.
  • Outside agencies who specialise working with visual impaired children, to come into school, to guide, to advise and train the Beckfoot Phoenix staff and assess and work with the VI pupils when needed.
  • That all pupils have an individual visual impaired curriculum, tailored to their individual needs.
  • That all pupils have a VI program with targets, which is easily accessible to the member of staff working with the VI pupil.
