Welcome to Falcons class!
Falcons consists of six students on the Autism Spectrum in key stages three and four. The students are supported by a class teacher (Sally) and three teaching assistants (Fran, Michelle and Eloise). A higher level teaching assistant (Caroline) manages the class on a Tuesday.
Students in key stage three access the EQUALS Semi-Formal Curriculum which consists of the following strands:
- Problem solving
- The world about me
- Play and leisure
Students in key stage four are working towards accreditation using ASDAN Personal Progress. This consists of units in the following areas:
- Literacy, numeracy and ICT
- Independent living skills
- Personal development
- Community participation
- Preparation for work
The curriculum is personalised to meet the individual needs of each student and to ensure meaningful engagement. A structured and visual environment enables students to understand expectations and lower levels of anxiety.
