Sheridan School’s primary curriculum supports students to understand their emotions, work to create a self-regulation tool kit and enable them to communicate effectively between adults and peers. We also offer students a range of interventions to ensure that each need is being met.
Within the primary area we have a sensory room which offers a therapeutic space for young people to support a variety of physical and cognitive skills. The calm environment supports students to self-regulate and encourages students to succeed within the classroom.
A student’s education, health and care plan (EHCP) is used to set SMART individual education plan’s (IEP) to support students social, emotional, communication and education needs. As part of the primary timetable, all students can participate in a form of sensory circuits creating calm sensory systems and supporting students to feel ready to learn.
Interventions are carried out to support students in many areas including a variety of fine and gross motor skills, working memory, social skills and emotional regulation.
Maths and English interventions are available to students to bridge the gap within students learning under subject leads.
