Our Primary Department

Our Primary department is made up of five classes:

Rainbow Class

Rainbow Class is for primary age pupils whose barriers to learning are still being assessed as well as those who benefit from small group and individual sensory based learning sessions. Play based learning, intensive interaction and nurturing approaches will be key to developing both child and parent confidence as children first attend a complex needs school. Focus is on the development of learning readiness, co-operation and daring to engage.

Yellow Class

Yellow Class is for primary age pupils whose barriers to learning, regulation tools and most effective teaching approaches are still being explored. Play based learning, intensive interaction and nurturing approaches will be key to developing confidence as children progress through their first few years in a complex needs school

 

Red Class

Red Class is currently based around primary aged pupils whose barriers to learning are linked to their inability to focus, attend and motivation to engage in learning activities. The need to generalise skills and embed in functional situations before developing increased abstract learning, to be flexible, to develop social interaction skills and group working.

 

Blue Class

Blue Class is currently based around primary age pupils whose barriers to learning include high levels of communication need, therapy needs, intensive support in regulation, self help/care, and support in interaction skills. They need a practical sensory/play based curriculum in order to engage them with learning.

 

 

Green Class - Autistic Resource Base (ARB)

Green Class is for pupils whose barriers to learning is linked to their difficulty in regulating their emotional and alert state, communication needs and the need for a highly sensory play based curriculum in order to engage them with learning.
