 Approach to Learning:

Children develop their communication and language skills with strategies such as 'word aware' embedded into the curriculum. The team work very closely with the Speech and Language Therapist to ensure age appropriate communication scaffolds are in place to support everyone to access the curriculum. Emotional Literacy Support is embedded throughout the pupils' day and personalised interventions are put in place as required. In partnership with the Occupational Therapist the team ensure the learning environment and access to learning meets need. Learning is active and multi-sensory.
