Starfish is a class of 7 pupils – 5 boys and 2 girls – who make up part of the Unique Hub. Their teacher is Emmanuelle Dubois and she is supported by 6 Teaching Assistants – Angela, Peter, Maria, Sarah, Kathryn and Kieran.
Pupils in Starfish Class follow the ImPACTS curriculum consisting of a set of 10 targets, covering the areas of: Communication, Cognition, Environmental Control Technology (ECT), Personal, Social and Emotional Well-Being (PSEWB) and Physical (fine and gross motor). These 10 targets form the basis of our learning and we work towards these throughout all aspects of our daily routine.
We follow a sensory approach to learning and prefer to be hands-on, using concrete resources and making lots of mess! We have adopted an ethos that ‘only when a child is ready to learn then we will maximise their learning to its full potential’.
