Kingfisher Special School is organised into teams based on primary needs, which enables environments, learning and resources to be personalised. Classes maybe made up of different year groups as a result.
2 Year Old Provision caters for children aged from two to four years old who have severe and complex needs. The children are provided with a bespoke and personalised Early Years provision within the Ducklings Nursery setting which meets all their specific needs. The children are emergent learners who are developing early responses and exploring their environment with support from an adult.
Red Team caters for children with Autism. Routine, and the security this brings, including strategies for planned change, are essential.
Yellow Team are emergent learners and those learning to learn where children’s understanding relies heavily on additional clues and support. Children are ‘learning to learn’ their own early responses and how these responses can affect their immediate environment.
For some children, learning is a combination of all of the above, but the organisation, delivery and emphasis on content reflects how the children’s perceptions and learning approach can differ from others.
