Meet the Team


In Bee Class we focus on the core skills, communication, cognition, physical and social. We work on the Routes for Learning ‘route map’ or associated targets.

We are developing body awareness through physiotherapy sessions every morning and weekly swimming and rebound activities. The children also use their standing frames daily to work on weight-bearing and when in different positions, they carry out bespoke lessons which will help them to develop core skills.

Children work on using their vision throughout all activities, to reinforce visual skills they might find difficult.

Some children also focus on Contingency awareness and responding which helps them understand they can make things happen.

Supporting Our Students to Learn


Cognition and Learning

These sessions focus on the students working on their understanding of the world around them. Using cause and effect toys, independently exploring objects and textures, using their senses to listen, look, smell and taste and anticipating familiar routines within repeated sequences.


Social, Emotional and Mental Health

These sessions encourage students to acknowledge each other and work together or alongside each other with support. They also allow students to anticipate and take part in daily routines such as snack or personal care as independently as possible.

Physical and Life Skills – Daily physical sessions allow students to take part in their individual physiotherapy programmes as well as using their standing frames, changing position every 2 hours. They also have weekly swimming and rebound activities to maintain as much physical movement as possible.

Communication and Interaction

This begins as soon as the pupils start their day. Many opportunities are set up throughout the school day to ensure that the pupils are working on their communication and interaction targets.
