The Early Years Foundation Stage offers a rich learning environment where each child’s key skills are developed through play. The department has three classes who join together for music sessions, water fun, trips, assemblies and various events. Within the Foundation Stage each child learns to develop their independence, social skills, following simple routines and engaging in a variety of sensory activities.
Key Stage 1
In Key Stage 1 we extend the early years approach whilst developing early learning and play skills. Our pupils are taught in small class sizes that are predominantly mixed ability groups, similar to their mainstream peers, however we are able to ensure the curriculum offered is highly differentiated and individualised.
Key Stage 2
In Key Stage 2 we continue to prepare each child for more formal learning environments. We continue to deliver elements of the National Curriculum in a highly differentiated and individualised manner. We also work to ensure we are developing the independence of all our pupils. Each child’s capabilities are considered and individual needs are fully met, educationally, socially, emotionally and physically. In addition we work with many professionals and offer specialised programmes, these include: Occupational Therapy, Therapeutic Interventions (Th.Inc.®), Speech and Language, Donkey Therapy, Hydrotherapy and many more.
