The School Day

The school is organised in three pathways which cut across the Key Stages. Transition programmes are in place to ensure successful transition as students’ progress through the school and onto future provision.

The students are grouped according to academic levels. There up to 13 students in each class suite which is split into groups within a class suite of rooms which is led by a Teacher, Therapists and HLTA. Students are then supported by a team of STA’s and TA’s according to each individual’s needs.

The school day starts for all students with Circle Time which involves communication and emotional regulation.

Students follow a generic timetable which has personalised activities and a personal sensory diet. Lessons are jointly planned and delivered by the Education and Therapy team working in an embedded model.

For residential students there are daily morning and evening handovers to ensure care  and education staff are kept fully informed of students’ needs.
