3X is a semi-formal class. We have ten students in this class and we are based in room 7. We have eight boys and two girls in the classroom. 3X are supported by one full time learning support assistant and two part time learning support assistants.
We have a mixed range of abilities and our support staff help access differentiated work for those who need it. The students in 3X are working within the following ranges:
English Level 1A to Level 2A
Maths Level 1B to Level 3C
Science Level 2c to Level 4b
They have a range of learning needs and their needs and staff are very much aware of their individual needs. Positive support and positive behaviour plans are put in place to create a safe and pleasant learning environment for our students. Our reward system is a very encouraging tool for our students and helps them to engage with their work and improve behaviour. We benefit from having a work station just outside our classroom where students can go should they require some time to self-regulate, with support if needed. We have clear rules displayed on the walls and also have a visual timetable which the students can utilise to support their day.
In the morning we have tutor time where the students practise their reading. During this time registration takes place. Students participate in assembly on Tuesday afternoons. At this time a class Star of The Week is chosen and WAM prizes are awarded.
With the exception of Science, all core subjects are taught by the 3X tutor. Science is taught by a specialist teacher.
Communication between home and the Academy is vital. Students’ planners are checked each morning and we encourage parents to correspond with us via the planner. You may also contact us via telephone or school email should the matter require urgent attention and we will ensure to return the phone call as soon as possible.
We are very excited and look forward to a great year ahead.
