Being in the Resource Base
Children will attend their linked classes with their peers in mainstream for part of the week. (Due to Covid restrictions, the Resource Base has formed their own bubble and remain together for the whole week). Children will have English and Maths lessons in the provision’s classroom as well as specialist lessons to support independence, social skills and communication. These lessons include hands on learning and continuous provision to ensure that children, where appropriate, can learn through hands on play.
Some of the time will be spent attending a number of interventions to help children achieve academically and socially. This will include speech and language sessions, Emotional literacy sessions (ELSA), social learning, Lego therapy and specialist academic sessions.
Each child has social and communication targets which are created using the inclusive curriculum based on their individual EHCPs. This means that students will be working throughout the day on the essential skills needed to be an effective communicator; this could mean greeting a peer, managing social situations or holding a lengthier conversation.
