Welcome to Lion Class
Our teacher is called Jane and our teaching assistant are called Pam (HLTA), Emily, Sue, Susan and Vicky.
The children in Lion Class follow 'SPARKLE CURRICULUM' which is delivered in a multi-sensory, creative way which will enables pupils to access learning using their senses through a holistic approach. It has been designed for our pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) and Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) who require specialised management for physical disabilities, sensory impairments and complex medical needs.
The SPARKLE CURRICULUM is:
· MOTIVATING Our pupils learn when they are interested, stimulated and engaged.
· RELEVANT It is relevant to the learning styles of the pupils and takes into account their prior knowledge and learning needs.
· CHALLENGING All teaching staff have high and realistic expectations of the pupils and with specialised, inclusive teaching — progress is evident.
· FOCUSED Shared targets from EHCP, Physiotherapists, OT, SALT etc. are central to the pupils provision.
Sparkle curriculum is predominantly made up of sensory themed learning and therapeutic activities. More time will be spent on more beneficial, holistic and individualised activities e.g. positioning in specialised equipment, visual stimulation, hand and finger work (exploration – sensory play), therapies (hydrotherapy, rebound therapy etc), movement, relaxation, Tac Pac, story massage etc.
Alternative Week Arrangements
At the moment, parents and carers are unable to come into our school building so any messages can be written in the children's orange 'Home School Books'. Please phone school if you require any further information or want to speak to a member of staff.
If essential, outside professionals e.g. physiotherapist, OT etc can come into school but it must be by appointments only.
Start and the end of the day arrangements will remain the same
