Stanhope Class is part of the Key Stage 3 department.

It currently provides specialist autistic provision for pupils in year 7 to 10.

The class has a high staffing ratio supported by an Enhanced Teaching Assistant.

The class follow a semi-formal curriculum that offers:

A relationship focused, person cantered approach and one, which is highly individualised and structured.

We provide appropriate, functional and meaningful long-term goals, and we use their interests and motivations creatively to gradually work towards their goals.

We provide meaningful activities that facilitate processed based learning through a fluid environment following the pupil’s interests and wants.

All learning opportunities are invitations for the pupils, respecting emotional regulation and well-being for all pupils.

Pupils in Stanhope class have control over their body autonomy and freedom to express themselves in anyway the wish.

Our approach relies on us questioning what activities we are delivering and why. We ask ourselves:

  • Is it predictable?
  • Is it desirable?
  • Is it meaningful?

At the heart of the curriculum, we aim to promote emotional regulation and social communication.
