Special Educational Needs
Mrs S Dewan is the SENCO and is available in the first instance by contacting the school office using the email [email protected]
All parents must contact school in advance to advise of posting dates and inform the school of any Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND)/ Gifted and Talented (G&T)/ Health Issues.
Parents are asked to provide as much information about their child as possible including the contact details for their previous/current school.
If a child is currently accessing external services, such as Speech & Language Therapy or has a statement of educational needs or a Health & Education Plan then the family must also register with DCS in the UK.
Families should not accept a posting until an MOD Assessment of Supportability Overseas (MASO) is complete. If your child has Special Educational Needs a MASO will be crucial in determining whether your family receive a Certificate of Educational Supportability.
Please note: Children without Educational Clearance cannot proceed with your posting to Brunei.
In some cases, it can take up to 9 weeks for Educational Clearance to be decided.
MOD Assessment of Supportability Overseas (MASO) may be required for your child, more information on the MASO flow chart can be found on our school web site.
A MASO is a partnership decision between school, health, social services and HQ BFB on the supportability of any children with special or additional needs.
The MASO panel for BFB will meet to discuss any child where MASO paperwork is submitted to MOD Schools. The process for Hornbill School is supported by the MOD Educational Psychologist and MOD Services in UK.
