Personalised Provision

  • We have provision for pupils aged 4 to 16 
  • We have specialist classes for pupils with PMLD, ASC, SLD and MLD as we believe their learning environments need to be different 

SLD (with/ without autism)and PMLD classes have a teacher who teaches them for all subjects , whereas some MLD classes (with / without autism) have specialist teachers for French, Maths , English, Drama, Music and Art. The emotional and learning needs of the pupils are considered when deciding how many teachers they experience during a school day.  
Some pupils with Attachment needs have a key adult to provide emotional security through the day. 

Lower Site 

We have 12 classses on the Lower Site each with the equivalent of 1 full time teacher and an average of 2 Teaching Assistants, although this varies according to each class' needs. The average class size is around 7 pupils. All pupils have individualised targets set across the whole curriculum, called Next Steps . These are set and reviewed termly. All children have Home /School Books and some classes also send a class email home daily with more general information. We have two parent / teacher consultations per year. Annual review meetings for your child's EHCP are held.
