Miss Anna Malone | Mrs Lynsey Rushworth
Welcome to Primary
We are an inclusive, specialist primary school for children who have an EHCP with Social, Emotional and Mental Health or Communication and Interaction as their primary need.
We offer small, nurturing classes. We ensure all our children feel welcome and know that they are an important part of our class, the whole school and the community.
We have a two classes which are a mix of Year 6 and 7. The class teachers are Miss Malone and Mrs Rushworth. Our wonderful teaching assistants are Miss Young and Mrs Welch.
All of our staff are specially trained to support and meet the needs of children who have ASC, ADHD, communication and language needs, learning delays and specific learning needs. Staff are trained in supporting children with ACES and mental health needs.
We teach Maths, English, Reading and PE every morning. In the afternoons children take part in a range of lessons including outdoor learning, Food Technology, humanities, RSHE, RE and science in the science lab.
Our Curriculum is based on differentiated challenges to stretch and motivate our children, it is an inclusive curriculum - empowering every child to succeed, we drive to promote independent skills and develop social skills to enable our children to succeed as they move through life. We sometimes have to start from a lower attainment base for some of our learners, as sometimes the children may have been absent from school for some time. We use a variety of diagnostic methods and phonics including RWI to develop our basic skills. Social and communication skills are embedded throughout our curriculum.
We believe in positive behaviour support and encourage our children to name their feelings and take ownership over their actions. We promote resilience and encourage the children to become reflective of the way the treat others and themselves. We use lots of different systems to reward positive behaviour.
