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 teh first week see a noticable difference in childrens behaviour including being more focuses and maintaining eye contact.

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
