Intentions & Aspirations

As a communication and interaction specialist provision our ambition for our pupils is to ensure that they are able to leave us with the best life chances that we can give them.

Our GROW ethos is the foundation of our approach.

We want our pupils to:

Guide and listen to their own voice and feelings and be aware that others around them will also support them.

Raise the roof of resilience and be able to approach life challenges with confidence.

Openly celebrate their achievement and the achievement of others.

Work together to develop their social interaction skills and enjoy working with others.
