We strive to achieve the most we can while the students branch into adulthood. Throughout the year, we provide an exciting and varied curriculum which enables pupils to develop key lifelong learning skills as well as promoting a love of learning and developing essential life skills including, self-awareness and social skills, managing feelings, empathy, reasoning and creative thinking.
Teaching is also undertaken outside the classroom during carefully planned visits/activities which allow the pupils to demonstrate their confidence in a range of situations. This helps learners to consolidate and apply their skills to different contexts; therefore, extending their learning.
This week has been really lovely having the full class back together and you would not know they had been apart.
We have been really busy making use of the nice weather painting the garden furniture we made in Careers. As part of our ASDAN Enterprise we are making and painting garden ornaments that are now for sale.
The Star of the week is Jake Claybourn for excelling in knowing o’clock -well done Jake.
This week we have been following instruction and as part of this we have made bird feeders which the students really enjoyed and so have the birds.

Some students have returned to school this week and you would never think they had been away. They all really enjoyed making a rain gauge yesterday with our enterprise adviser from Drax Power station.
Students have been learning all about capacity in maths, in particular more, less, full, half full and empty
