Our students want opportunities to be sociable and to make friends. Being able to speak up for yourself and to express your ideas and opinions is important. We try to ensure that we develop these skills in all subjects in our curriculum, in our tutor based activities, and in free time.
All students follow a timetable involving option choices for practical subjects, core subjects (English, Maths, RSHE and Careers), and subjects broadening awareness of preparation for adulthood such as Work Experience Training, and Duke of Edinburgh. Students learn and practice literacy and numeracy skills for everyday life, such as telling the time, handling money, reading instructions across the whole curriculum, which involves many activities off site.
Our strategy time interventions provide targeted support to build confidence. Games and team working enable students to put into practice social and communication skills. Having fun and laughter diffuses tension. Making sure we recognise each individual’s personality, strengths and weaknesses, helps our students manage their anxieties.
All of the option choices in the timetable offer practical activities which build gross, and fine motor skills through the use of tools and equipment. Opportunities for outdoor learning both onsite and offsite provide sensory stimulus.
