    The focus for each pupil is an individual learning package catering for their speech and language development, social, physical and learning needs. The curriculum is delivered through a holistic approach to play, first hand experiences, academic learning and adult directed activities.  The staff assess pupils on a daily basis and record data each term.

    Any Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy or Physiotherapy targets are built into the pupil's daily programmes and delivered by school staff.  The Health Authority Professionals visit the school and monitor progress.

    Phone calls, emails and a daily home school link book share information about the pupil. Each pupil has an Annual Review to update their Education Health Care Plan.
