Special Education Needs
Educational provision is achived through full integration into the mainstream school. Sensitive and creative adaptation of the curriculum may be required in order to match what is taught and how it is taught to the childrens' aptitudes and abilities. This can be done by adopting appropriate teaching methods and resources which are sensitive to the expected pace of learning. Withdrawal from lessons is kept to a minimum. Each faculty area has an LSA assigned to work within that specialist subject to support statemented children. We also utilise a bungalow which has been turned into a learning centre for children who find High School difficult to access. Here a balance between practical skills and raising literacy is achieved through students engaging in projects such as gardening, cooking, carpentry, photography and community work. We strive to work towards nationally recognised qualifications such as ASDAN. Students participate in organising sailing activities, fishing trips and visits to help raise their self esteem and leadership skills. Each year we try to offer our "special" students a residential trip to an outdoor activities centre.
