  • We use a multi-sensory approach when delivering the curriculum.
  • We provide each pupil with the time needed to respond, act, and achieve.

  • We provide Music therapy and sensory Drama sessions
  • We work hand in hand with our Nurses, Physios, OT’s and Speech departments.

  • We listen to our Parents; we learn from them – They provide us with the key information to make each day special.
