Learning for Life

Our approach to education ensures that learning experiences extend beyond the classroom to encompass every opportunity for students to develop to their full potential. Communication skills are a priority in our learning programmes. Our Speech and Language Therapists assess students and focus on developing skills. This is underpinned by a range of strategies in a total communication environment. Challenging behaviours are addressed by implementing individually focussed positive programmes. These are developed with our Education Psychologist who supports staff to ensure a consistent approach in all environments. In addition, our incident recording system enables us to provide detailed records of behaviours and outcomes so these can be analysed and appropriate solutions implemented. We provide lots of opportunities for our students to demonstrate and celebrate their achievements. Together with the young person, parents, teachers, carers, social workers and key workers we establish annual objectives for the young person and individual education and care plans identify learning targets which are assessed and developed throughout the year. In Key Stage 3 the curriculum follows a topic based approach. In Key Stages 4 and 5 programmes of study are based on the EQUALS Curriculum Framework. Campus facilities include an ICT room, designated craft areas and a sensory room. Our young people are able to exercise in our purpose built leisure barn and relax in our play room and UV (dark) room.

‘ Teachers have a wide range of strategies in place to ensure that pupils ’ communication skills are developed. Through a combination of sign language, visual timetables and other communication systems, pupils effectively manage the school day and make broadly strong rates of progress. ’
