Mr Neil Gregson

Welcome to Class 11!  

In class 11 there are 7 Key Stage 3 students between the ages of 11 and 14. 

In class 11 we follow a broad and varied curriculum, we have daily structured English and Maths sessions that focus on developing literacy and numeracy, problem solving, communication and independence skills. 

Through external accreditation in ASDAN New Horizons we are focussing on developing independence, self help skills, aiming high and staying positive skills. 

We are following the semi-formal curriculum to develop our creative, communication, and teamwork skills focussing on My Creativity and Art and My Physical Well-being.

On a daily basis we will have regular fun sensory input sessions which include exercise sessions where we are taught to use our muscles on our gym equipment, go on peaceful walks in the school grounds or participate in individual or group sensory circuits. Our sensory sessions also include enjoying personal tactile items such as toys, messy play or exploring visual, sound or movement items. We are supported to develop our own awareness of our sensory needs to help to feel calm, happy and ready to learn 

We are developing our communication skills in school and out in the community and we each have targets which we are working towards. In class we have a whole communication approach and use a variety of ways of communicating such as Makaton, PECS, Objects of reference, Intensive Interaction, and Colourful Semantics. In the community we look forward to using local services to develop our personal independence and communication skills.
