At Red Rose School we appreciate that our young people may have found learning or just being in school a difficult experience. With this in mind we carefully pace their transition into our school and start by building relationships between pupil and staff. Positive relationships are key to developing social and emotional readiness for learning, only then can meaningful learning can take place.
We offer a varied curriculum that is personalised to each pupil’s specific needs and heavily slanted toward developing emotional resilience, social skills, fostering curiosity and developing self-confidence. This is delivered creatively and designed to allow all pupils to have access to a range of learning experiences that meets their current needs, builds on their interests and skillset and addresses any struggles.
Our dedicated team of staff provide a calm, safe and supportive environment, and are supplemented with expertise from peripatetic professionals.
At Key Stage 2, pupils follow a core curriculum of Literacy, Numeracy, ICT, Science, Humanities, PHSE, Physical Education (incorporating off site activities both indoor and outdoor), cookery and creative play.
At Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 pupils follow a core curriculum of Literacy, Numeracy, ICT, Science, Humanities, Art, Physical Education involving off site activities, Independent Living Skills and PHSE. All pupils work towards both ASDAN and WJEC accredited exams.
All of our pupils spend half a day a week on carefully supervised work-related learning at the farm. This may include caring for the animals, growing food or structural work around the buildings and grounds.
At Red Rose School we believe that education has the greatest impact when there is a partnership between home and school and when all adults involved in the life of the child are supportive of the placement. This is why we strive to build a positive relationship with parents/carers, to ensure cooperation and mutual respect between all members of our community.
