Children learn best when they are inspired, motivated and challenged; when they are active learners in an environment that encourages them to be independent and confident to question and explore.
Our education and specialist provision reflects on our current pupil cohort. Our timetables are inclusive, meaningful and provide the specialist individual interventions that our pupils need to support their own personal developments.
We provide education for pupils functioning at the very earliest levels of development up to national curriculum expected levels and above. The school offers a holistic communication environment and culture. Our curriculum enables every child to learn and develop individual skills making them active partners in achieving their goals. It is interactive, enjoyable and visual.
Every pupil at the Llewellyn school has an Education, Health and Care plan. We recognise that many of our pupils experience multiple/complex needs and are functioning at early levels of development regardless of their chronological age; many also experience additional physical and sensory impairments and require specialists’ medical interventions. All of our pupils are supported 1:1 and our class sizes are small.
Lessons are delivered in a way that is appropriate to the subject and to the children’s varied learning styles. Pupil’s are taught by specialist teachers and practitioners who find ways to effectively stimulate each pupil’s learning and development in a safe and supported setting and offers a learning plan that is personalised to each pupil.
Most of our staff have British Sign Language (BSL) qualifications ranging from Level 1 to Level 4. They are experts in their field and are committed to sharing best practice. They are constantly learning, developing and innovating so that our school continues to offer the very best education.
