Our shared school vision

To support all children and young people to hold their rightful place in society, equipped with the knowledge to shape their own futures, skills to lead an enriched and healthy life and voices to make a positive contribution in the world.

In Rowan Class, we strive towards our shared vision by:

  • Providing opportunities to develop independence and self-help skills.
  • Promote healthy and active lifestyles through the use of Physical Active Learning (PAL).
  • We provide opportunities for pupils to use their voices to express their needs, feelings and thoughts, through the use of sign, symbol and verbal communication.
  • Enabling pupils with the ability to recognise their emotions and equip them with strategies to self-sooth and regulate, when needed. 

Our Curriculum

We believe in a broad and balanced ‘no limits’ curriculum that develops and nurtures life-long learning, builds interests, is meaningful and imaginative and promotes togetherness in the school and wider community. It is happy-centred; driven by confidence, positive relationships, support, coping skills and achievement and success.



In the Autumn term, we will strive towards developing the following skills:

Communication:  pupils will be encouraged and will be providied with the opportunity to communicate with staff and peers, using their preferred form of communication.

Independence:  dressing/undressing, toileting and self-care skills.

Independence:  preparing snacks and exploring new foods, textures and smells.

EHCP:  pupils will work on all of their individual targets, which will be incorporated into our everyday learning experiences.

Forest School:  we will participate in lots of whole class activities - developing waiting, turn taking and sharing.

Life Skills:  we will develop an understanding of winning and losing and begin to accept that we will not always win or be first.

Maths:  we will focus on number skills and data handling this term and incorporate into everyday life skills.

English:  our book, this half term is "Somebody Swallowed Stanley".  We will be exploring the different sea creatures and making our own story boxes, using recycled items.

Topic:  "Reduce, reuse, recycle".  We will be making our reusable bags and explore lots of different textures and materials.
