Welcome to Acorns!
Please check back over the coming weeks
as we add information and photos of our timetables, learning and achievements!
The Autumn term is once again upon us and we've got a new name to go with this new school year- we are now Acorns!
'Acorns' is an indoor and two outdoor areas within the middle of our school building. We have a comfy classroom vibe to our learning space, with a large sofa and bean bag area, independent activities areas as well as tables and chairs for group learning.
Our Acorns provision is in place to help meet the needs of pupils across the school, particularly those with special educational needs/disabilities and those who require additional support with their social and emotional skills.
In the mornings we focus on small group and 1:1 English and Maths work and in the afternoons we run a nurture-style provision and take part in group activities to develop our social and emotional skills.
Keep up-to-date with our learning on here and via our class Dojo page.
In Acorns we have a strong focus on the personal, social and emotional aspects of our learning- this helps us to be ready and able to fully access the teaching and learning in our other classrooms.
