Early Intervention 

Learning is about much more than simply imparting knowledge. Therefore we use modern teaching methods to suit the individual learning needs and to build teamwork and a sense of social responsibility. We believe that it's vital to provide individual support for every student and in group sessions. 

 

After a pilot programme in 2018, we are taking this forward in 2019 working with year 6 students over 3 schools assisting them in the preperation for the transition to secondary school through mindfullness and healthy sessions: identifying pupiles most vunerable of a poor transtion, doing group work to reduce stress and anixiety linked to starting a new school, understanding what is acceptable behaviour and the harm of social media. Teachers within the first week see a noticable difference in childrens behaviour including being more focuses and maintaining eye contact.

 

The programme has grown and we are now funded annually by Kent County Council Early Help and prevention to delivery Health and Wellbeing to the Folkestone District in 2020 & 2021

 

 

Our philosophy

  • we encourage our students to develop their social skills and give them room for personal development
  • we encourage our students to strive towards meaningful goals and support them as they solve the problems they encounter so that they gain increased levels of autonomy
  • our philosophy is applied to all levels of our teaching plan. Students are encouraged to get involved in designing the way that they are taught.
  • in short, we encourage our students to develop their own personality and to discover their own individual paths towards adulthood.

Our strengths lie in:

  • encouraging independent learning by using a variety of teaching methods
  • creating a supportive environment
  • nurturing constructive relationships with parents
  • academic learning through projects and extracurricular activities
  • holding various events in our school and in St. Margarets-At-Cliffe;Dover
  • cooperating with neighbouring nurseries and schools
