We provide a nurturing yet challenging environment for our youngest pupils. Learning opportunities are thoroughly planned and individualised. We embrace a topic-based approach which includes opportunities for swimming, horse riding, weekly outings and build in regular opportunities to use our Soft Play facility and access our Therapy rooms to support learning when required. We have a strong emphasis on nurturing autonomous learners who develop their independence, problem solving, communication and interaction skills.
Curriculum content in our primary department covers the four core areas of learning, Communication and Interaction, Thinking and Problem Solving, Self Regulation and Behaviour, and Independence. These core areas are then split into 6 learning strands, to ensure breath and depth to each learners experiences and key skills are covered over a 4 year thematic curriculum cycle.
