Typical school day

Our pupils arrive around 9am and the day begins with a 20-minute tutor period. During this time, there are planned activities such as reading or assembly and pupils also get the opportunity to have some breakfast.

The morning then consists of 3 x 1 hour lessons which will be core learning such as English, maths, ICT, science and PSHE. These lesson have 2 x 15 minute breaks in between to allow pupils to meet any sensory needs, get some fresh air or have a drink and snack.

After lunch, there is an extended session where pupils access practical and vocational learning such as PE or catering. The day then ends with a 10 minute tutor to review the day and await transport home.

We find that pupils respond well to having access to a break between sessions and this allows pupils to engage most effectively with their learning.
