Emerald class is a KS3/4 class with 8 pupils, each with a range of complex needs. This class follows a specialised curriculum focusing on six key skill areas.
In Emerald Class we follow an IMPACTS Curriculum:
All our pupils follow an individualised programme that meets their needs supported by all the teaching assistants in class.
Communication is embedded throughout the school day. In Emerald class we use objects of reference, symbols, auditory books, signing, prompts and gestures to cue in pupils learning.
We have a quiet learning environment to maximise pupils learning opportunities. We use a multi-sensory approach to enhance pupils understanding and enjoyment of learning.
We include songs to engage pupils as a part of our sensory stories. We use current stories and more traditional stories to give pupils a range of different experiences.
