Greta class offers mixed Early Years and Primary Specialist Sensory Provision for pupils with Profound, Multiple and Complex Learning Needs. Many of the pupils have additional medical needs and multi-sensory impairment.
The pupils in Greta class follow the Pre-formal curriculum pathway. The curriculum is themed and modified to suit the needs of the pupils and incorporates advice provided by multi-agency professionals. The curriculum is based upon sensory activities invoking responses from the pupils using sight, smell, sound, taste and touch with frequent repetition of activities to embed concepts and skills. Much of their learning will be process based; focusing on the exploration and experience rather than the end product.
The class teacher teaches the majority of the curriculum. PE is delivered by a specialist teacher. The class is supported by two Enhanced Teaching Assistants (job share) and a Teaching Assistant.
