The Hive

The Hive is an enhanced classroom provision for students with Special Educational Needs at Range 4 and above. We create a bespoke, multi-sensory learning environment which focuses on Speech, Language & Communication Skill Development, Social & Emotional Skills, Independence, Life Skills, Motor Skill Development, and Core Learning progress in Reading, Writing and Maths. In order to meet the unique needs of our students, we create a tailor-made curriculum lead by the students interests and where possible we incorporate as much outdoor learning via the use of our school grounds and the world around them. We believe that experiential, hands on learning is the best way to support students who have additional needs and developing their knowledge of the world around them is also important to safeguard our students.

The Hive runs 5 mornings and 2 afternoons each week, allowing children three afternoons within their mainstream classroom to develop peer and adult relationships wider than The Hive. Students are also involved in areas of learning additional to this where they can experience success within a mainstream environment, and are always included on their mainstream class trips and additional experiences. Within The Hive, we ensure the school rules and routines are followed in order to support students with their transition into their mainstream classroom. We also follow an intrinsic motivation focus so that students are learning to do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

We believe that SEN should not be a barrier to aspirational thinking and we encourage all our students to be the best they can be, empowering them with self-belief and self-worth. Students are encouraged to work collaboratively with each other in order to take responsibility for their learning environment, as well as each other.

We are very open to visitors in The Hive so if you would like any further information about how we work and who we work with then please contact the school SENCo and we will be more than happy to accommodate you in our classroom!
