Class teacher and Geography lead
Our aim in SCD 1 is to involve all children in the social and academic life of the school wherever possible. We strive to provide positive learning experiences for all our children. We recognise that some children with Social and Communication Difficulties can find the world confusing and often miss-leading. We see each child as an individual and it is our aim to tailor a curriculum that is rich in enjoyment and specific to the needs of our children.
Teaching approaches that are used within the resource bases are tailored to the individual and incorporate thinking from a wide range of sources, including: social stories, visual prompts and structured short burst teaching. The curriculum is weighted to address the personal, social and communication needs of the pupils. The 'little base' includes a sensory room, a work based learning room for table activities, and a continuous provision room that nurtures curiosity and allows for a play based curriculum. Our continuous provision room also has access to our beautiful outdoor area.
