Welcome to Indigo Class!
Indigo Class is a mixed Primary and Secondary Autistic Resource base. We offer a highly adapted curriculum in a smaller class of pupils supported by a higher ratio of adults than many other parts of the school.
Pupils enjoy learning through our thematic curriculum, focusing on a new and exciting topic each half term. We dedicate time to work 1:1 explicitly on functional communication and building tools to support students self-regulation and these focuses are further emphasised throughout our lessons which include cooking, personal care, and household management.
In Indigo Class we take a holistic approach to learning and consider each students individual needs and abilities by following a highly structured and sensory based timetable. This allows us the flexibility to individualise learning to work on the ‘Personalised Learning Goals’ of each student by embedding a variety of engaging and multi-sensory experiences throughout our weekly timetable.
We make full use of the school’s therapeutic resources including the Therapy Room, school pool, sunken trampoline and playground. These resources allow our students to meet their sensory needs so they are happy and regulated to access learning.
Our students benefit from regularly accessing the community on a variety of trips and visits. We visit local parks, shops, and cafes as well as making weekly visits to a local swimming pool and boxing club. There is also the opportunity for our students to gain work experience at our school charity shop, Close Links.
