Other notes

Hope School is a special school for pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMH). Pupils range from aged 5-13. Hope School is unique because of our non-exclusion policy and the fact that we will never exclude a child from school.

Traditionally focusing on behaviour management, Hope School has moved away from this and now focuses on attachment friendly practice. Attachment friendly practice allows pupils become intrinsically motivated to want to learn and do well.

The school Day begins at 7:50am with breakfast club. Lessons begin at 8am with a short ‘check in’ session. This is followed by 5 lessons and a session after lunch known as CAP (Curriculum around the pupil) in which pupils have the chance to engage in practical activities such as cooking or using our state of the art climbing wall which all link to ASDAN qualifications.

We offer a creative curriculum based meeting holistic needs of individuals. All staff at Hope school are trained and provide pupils with an outstanding education. Staff are trained to work with pupils who have a range of needs e.g. attachment, ASD, ADHD, Learning Difficulties, sensory needs and Speech and Language. Hope school has two sensory rooms and a sensory circuit on site for pupils to use throughout the day. The school also has it's own Speech and Language team and receives OT support form an outside agency. Hope school ensures that each pupil is treated individually but in an inclusive environment which is child-centred.

We work closely with parents and carers of children in the school who are each given the opportunity to access training on attachment and trauma. We strive to work closely with parents and carers in developing rewarding attachment relationships with the children in their care.

We at Hope School rely on the continued support from the parents and carers of our pupils as we encourage our pupils to live up to our motto of ‘If I Try I Can’.

Description

Hope school caters for pupils aged 5-13 who have an EHCP, we provide a creative curriculum which supports pupils individual needs. Pupils all have One Page Profiles which help them reach targets and goals related to their learning and additional needs. These targets and goals are achieved by 1:1 intervention sessions by staff or specialists such as Occupational Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Speech and Language. All lessons are differentiated to meet individual needs so although pupils are challenged in their learning they also have the support they need to achieve and make progress. Class sizes are never bigger than 12 and all classes have three members of staff (one teacher, 2 support.) Pupils EHCP's are reviewed annually and targets are updated, this ensures that pupils are receiving the correct support and allows teachers, parents and pupils the time to discuss pupils progress and next steps.
