Within our Unique Hub pupils are taught through a multi-sensory approach following an individualised scheme of learning for all pupils. For pupils with severe ASC this may be through utilising a TEACCH approach as well as facilitating regular sensory breaks and enabling pupils to access a learning environment that is set up for their needs. Not all classes for pupils with severe ASC are set up the same because we ensure that our approaches to learning are individualised for pupils and how they learn best. We promote pupils developing independence in their access to the curriculum as well as develop more functional and purposeful communication for independence. In our classes for learners with more complex physical and medical needs our teaching and learning is adapted through the IMPACTS curriculum to provide pupils with an individualised curriculum that is centred on key skills children are working to develop. These key skills are then developed through all aspects of children’s routines enabling their learning to become functional and purposeful for them.
The classes in the Unique Hub this year are:
