We are excited to announce that our Resource Provision has been open and running successfully since January 2016. The Acorn class children have their own classroom and have safe relationships with the Acorn staff members. The designated teaching space for seven pupils has been designed to meet the needs of our students, to ensure that they feel comfortable and safe in their environment.
Acorn class is made up of one main teaching space, a second smaller teaching space, two break-out spaces and our own Acorn yard. In Acorn class we can deliver a personalised curriculum, specialist interventions and support children to develop their self-regulation and resilience. We acknowledge that at different times, social and emotional factors can impact on our pupils' learning potential. The interventions that we can provide through Therapeutic Inclusion for individuals and small groups can really unlock a child's potential.
Miss Bowers (Assistant Headteacher for Behaviour) and Ms Clough (Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion) are responsible for driving Acorn class forward with a huge focus on the children feeling safe, secure and very much part of the Broad Oak community.
Staff members working in Acorn class each day:
