Class Five consists of Year 10 students who work in a range of situations including whole class, collaborative group and individual learning.
Students are supported by two full-time Speech and Language Therapists, an Occupational Therapist, part-time Educational Psychologist, a Family Liaison Officer, a Pupil Support Coordinator and two full time Teaching and Learning Assistants.
Our day begins with meeting time when we use the visual timetable to go through the day ahead, giving students the opportunity to ask questions and to share any concerns they may have. We also discuss current events, the focus of the week and order lunch for those who have a meal prepared at school
Daily lessons follow the Key Stage 4 curriculum. Students remain in their own classroom, and our own specialist teachers come to teach them. Students who have a particular aptitude for a subject can also attend lessons at Samuel Ward Academy.
To prepare students for the future we deliver lessons following the ASDAN Life Skills scheme of work, our own bespoke Careers scheme and ICT programme which are also a part of the weekly curriculum.
We strive to meet the individual needs of students both within lessons and through intervention programmes that develop literacy and numeracy skills and address social, speech, language and physical needs.
