Teaching and Learning Resources
A range of resources and approaches are used across school to support children learning across different abilities. Some examples are as follows:
- All classrooms have different types of practical and visual apparatus to support teaching and learning
- Our reading books are book banded so that they are at the appropriate level for your child to make progress
- We have a range of ICT equipment which is used to support children when recording their work in different ways within the school environment
- Classroom management and organisation accommodate children with any additional need including: physical, hearing or sight impairment (where applicable)
- Our displays have examples of teacher models to support independent learning opportunities
Where specialist resources are required, these will be secured.
In addition to this, we provide support for those children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. We work with outside agencies to provide appropriate support for those pupils identified, with the consent of parents/carers. We plan and deliver pastoral interventions as appropriate across the school to support children who may find social situations difficult. We support groups of children across all recreational periods to maintain a happy and healthy environment for all. We follow a scheme of work aimed at the PSHE curriculum (personal, social, health, economic) called Jigsaw. Our school makes links to this aspect of the curriculum through whole-school assemblies, class assemblies and, PSHE lessons and the wider curriculum delivery.
The school will try to make sure that children with additional needs and their families are able to take part fully in school life. This may include:
- School trips
- Social events
- Before and after school clubs
- School performances and assemblies
School staff work closely with parents to ensure that specific needs are met, so that children have a wide and varied range of experiences that are fully accessible and enjoyable.
