Our aim with our provision is to develop our pupils’ independent learning skills and to offer them personalised and appropriate opportunities to integrate with our mainstream pupils. We expose them to exciting and enriching learning opportunities so they can progress through the EYFS or National Curriculum at their appropriate level and pace.
We ensure we set challenging, appropriate targets that focus on academic progression as well as progression through other key skills and abilities such as communication, social interaction, attention.
The number of children within the base classes is much smaller and we have a higher adult ratio than mainstream classes. This allows our pupils to access a higher level of support. This may be in the form of small group or 1:1 work within the base or being accompanied to lessons in the mainstream school. We are always striving to promote our pupils’ independence so support is constantly reviewed with a view to allowing the pupil to ultimately accomplish learning and tasks without support.
