  • Independent living skills

  • Community access
  • English, maths and IT.

Communication is supported using a total communication approach with the support of speech and language therapy where required.

Staff are trained in Positive Behaviour Management pro, a package of training devised from the positive behavioural support approach. This enables the team to support learners with their behaviour.

In addition, where appropriate learners have the opportunities to infill into other vocational/creative/sport sessions will be arranged as appropriate for each individual.

Each student has a specialist SEND personal tutor who works with them, their circle of support and relevant external agencies to plan and review their progress towards their aspirations at regular intervals.
