3O is one of the four KS3 classes and is part of Pathway 2 within the Academy.
3O are a vibrant group of students, who are playful and inquisitive. They enjoy learning through hands on experiences and exploration. All learners within the class have a range of complex learning needs related to communication, interpersonal and emotional needs; most of the class have a diagnosis of ASC or ADHD.
The teacher Rachel Kelly is supported by Grace Morley and Jess Williams who are both welcoming and skilled Teaching Assistants.
The children access most of the curriculum in their own classroom space which is a calming and stimulating environment that celebrates their achievements. Full advantage is also taken of the Academy facilities including the kitchen, hall, forest area, talking cabin, ICT suite and sensory room. The students study English and Maths three times a week with daily reading and phonics sessions taking place across the Academy. They also learn about Science, History and Geography through a cross curricular approach.
Opportunities are also taken to explore the wider community and local area, thorough community visits in the minibus, Throughout the year children also have opportunities to engage in PE, employment skills and drama experiences. The students explore their creative sides through art, cooking, music and drama. Our students also engage in our Preparing for Adulthood curriculum which develops the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to access/promote future employment, community skills, independence and health.
We communicate with home daily through the use of planners, email and telephone calls. We love to share the great work our students complete and celebrate their success.
