Stafford Hall School caters for children and young people who have autism, severe and complex learning difficulties and who exhibit associated challenging behaviours.
The school can accommodate up to 12 children and young people from ages 11 to 19. The school is mixed gender and non-denominational.
Our aim is to support children and young people to develop a wide range of skills, such as communication, social and independence skills in an environment that offers warmth, security, consistency and understanding.
The children and young people are supported to do this by a range of highly skilled staff who help to ensure that all children and young people will experience a broad range of different opportunities and enjoy their childhood.
The school aims to develop successful, confident and responsible children and young people and combines individualised learning programmes and strategic frameworks and agendas in order to address the complex needs of our students.
Our curriculum pays due regard to elements of numerous nationally recognised learning schemes including Equals, ASDAN and AQA, Foundation Learning and The National Curriculum across the range of learning from P level to the National Curriculum.
Provision for EAL
School assessment identifies pupils where English is their second language. All pupils will have an EHCP (Education health & Care Plan) this identifies need and outcomes to enable effective planning for learning support.
We carry out on-going recording of attainment and progress in line with agreed school assessment procedures.
ASSESSMENT IDENTIFIES INDIVIDUAL NEED AND REQUIRED SUPPORT FOR EAL. THIS IS TAILORED TO THE NEEDS OF EACH AND EVERY PUPIL PLACED WITH THE SCHOOL.
